Picture yourself in a small cottage in the hills in the dead of winter. The fireplace is alit. Tiny snowflakes drift past the window. The sound of wind in the trees and the occasional crackling off a log is the only noise you hear. You’re all snuggled up in a throw on the couch in front of the fireplace, warming your toes at the fire and warming your hands with the glass of warm mulled wine in your hands. This is where you’ll take a sip and smile at the pervasive smell of spices and the sheer deliciousness of the moment. And this is the moment we’ve tried to capture in this jar of Ammiji’s Mulled Wine Jam
We took the best Cabarnet Sauvignon we could lay our hands on – Indian, because #vocalforlocal! – and simmered it down with fruits and spices, till it formed a thick, spreadable jam. And then we bottled it up and hid it from Ammiji. Oh, she won’t disapprove, but being a teetotaler all her life, it’ll take a lot of conversation to convince her that alcohol could be converted to jam – and she likes jams! So we’ll take this jar to her when we visit her and get her approval then!
This jam is perfect for your cheeseboard, or your snack platter. Use it with cheese on crackers or smear it on cold cuts. Glaze meat with it. Or simply spread it on crisp toast and have it for breakfast! (Wine for breakfast? The things we do!) And no, you won’t get drunk on this jam. Most of the alcohol evaporates while cooking, leaving behind the characteristically umami, earthy taste of red wine.
Ammiji’s Mulled Wine Jam is made with NO artificial pectin. Just fruits and spices. And of course, no preservatives at all!
This jar will transport you to a winter wonderland – where fireplaces are always lit and snow always falls gently. Where people bundled up in sweaters and scarves sip on warm, boozy drinks while smells of cloves and citrus emanate from the kitchen. Where smiles are easy and conversation smooth. Where vanilla and cinnamon are not just flavours, they’re feelings. (Imagine saying “I’m feeling a wee bit cinnamonny today!” – lovely, no?)
So go ahead and get your jar of winter warmth right now – and make us feel cinnamonny. 🙂
