This was so easy to make and tasted absolutely delicious – neighbours and friends love it too. This recipe will certainly become a Christmas tradition. I added an extra cinnamon stick and 2 dried bay leaves and 5 black pepper corns and 1 star anise and used unrefined Demerara sugar – highly recommended! - 27 Dec 2011
