Chef’s Tip: November 2015

What can you do with Mulling Spice? Our mulling spice is a fragrant mix of Star Anise, Cinnamon, All Spice, Cloves, Candied Ginger, Cranberries and Black Pepper.  Classically it is used to make mulled wine or cider BUT we love to infuse some maple syrup & pour it over fresh waffles on Christmas morning!

Mulled Maple Syrup

Place 2 cups of maple syrup in a small sauce pot. Turn heat on low. Add 2 tablespoons of the mulling spice to the pot. Add a generous piece fresh orange rind, cut with a vegetable peeler and simmer for 15 minutes. Strain off the spices and transfer to a serving pitcher – serve warm.

Store in refrigerator up to 2 weeks. Serve warm with pancakes or waffles. 

Mulled Cider

  • Orange Peel From 1 Orange
  • Lemon Peel From 1 Lemon
  • ½  cup Maple Syrup
  • 8 cups Unfiltered Apple Juice
  • ½  cup Dark Rum (optional)

Place ¼ cup of the mulling spice, orange peel, and lemon peel in a medium saucepan. Pour in maple syrup and apple juice, then bring to almost a boil. Reduce the heat to its lowest setting and simmer for 30 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in the rum – strain and serve in mugs.
