One kind word can warm three winter months...

And one saucepan of this can warm three (or more) winter bellies!

Simple Finnish Cider Gluggi

1.5 litres apple cider (or you can use white wine)
4 tablespoons brown sugar
1 apple
3 cinnamon sticks
6 cloves
Small handful slivered almonds

Small handful sultanas
Splash of vodka (or more... depending on the level of drunkenness you wish to achieve!)

Pour cider in a large saucepan and heat it up, but not to boiling - just to bubbling under. Add thinly sliced apple, cinnamon sticks, brown sugar and cloves, turn down heat and simmer for ten minutes at low heat. Add almonds, and sultanas and/or vodka if you like. Strain into glasses. and share with pals. Get tipsy and play charades. Erm... if you like... :)

Happy drinking!
