|December 1999, Addison was a year-and-a-half old|
After we moved back to the States, I searched in vain for a recipe to make my own Kinder Gluhwein. Years passed and I had given up on recreating that German memory until a friend mentioned it on Facebook the other day.
It may not be the exact recipe used at the Weihnachtsmarkts we visited in Germany, but it's a wonderful hot treat for a cool December evening.
1 cup water
3 cups red grape juice
1 cinnamon stick
1 pinch ground cinnamon
4 Tablespoons honey
Cut the oranges and lemons into thin slices, and then cut each slice into eighths.
Add all ingredients to a large pot. Heat for at least 15 minutes, but do not boil.
Pour mixture through a sieve to remove fruit and spices before serving.
K is for Kinder Gluhwein!
