Scrub the skin of the other 2 half fruit thoroughly, and cut into small pieces, with both peel and flesh on each as far as possible.

Stage 4 - 3 min.

When wine boils, set light to the alcohol vapours (a pretty blue flame) by holing a flame above the pan.

Leave all alcohol to burn off, which will take about 2-3 minutes.

Stage 5 - 2 min.

Remarks

Many people think that the most important thing in mulled wine is the spices, but for me it's more the wine-fruit mix which gives the delicious hint of acidity. Then you can add whatever you want: vanilla, cinnamon, aniseed, pepper,...

For a quick mulled wine, forget: vanilla sugar, grapefruit and cinnamon.

For a glittering presentation, serve in glasses (not mugs) with the edges dipped in white egg then caster sugar.

Home made, and this recipe is dedicated to David who will certainly bemoan the short measure of cinnamon.
