Make the mulled cider featured on Escape to the Farm and in Home Cooked.
The mulling of cider is thought to have come from the tradition of wassailing, which has roots in paganism and the anglo-saxons. The wassailing, or blessing of the fruit trees, involves drinking and singing to the health of the trees to encourage them to provide a bountiful harvest in the autumn. This ancient custom still happens today – normally in January around Twelfth night, particularly in cider producing regions like our own.
Replace the cider with apple juice for a non-alcoholic version.
