How to Mull Wine
Do you mull wine?
Time to ramp up the recipes for dark winter nights. As a general rule, mulled wine isn’t on the top of my list: A) probably because it’s bordering on hypocraphal for good wine, and B) it’s a lot of work if only one or two people are going to be indulging. The idea of mulled wine, however, lingers romantically in the pages of Mrs. Beeton’s cookbook.
To mull, itself, is an interesting word. Did a quick search and the origins for this particular definition – to heat, sweeten – are unknown but first appeared only about 400 years ago. Something to mull over your morning coffee.
From Mrs. Beeton’s recipe collection c. 1861.
To keeping warm in January!
