Bags, Jars, and Mulling Spice

Some of the dried lavender in air tight jars ready for Christmas.
8 bags ready to contain Christmas presents. 4 of each colourway each in 2 sizes. From display curtains.
The lining co-ordinates with the cake fabric.

In the hunt for a cheap Christmas and supplying presents people will still like, I had the idea of making up Mulled Wine spices in little jars so people can make it up themselves.

Here’s the recipe:
Nutmeg- fresh grated best
3 tablespoons of brown sugar
Juice and rind of 1 lemon or orange
1 cinnamon stick
5 cloves
1/2 pint of water (300ml)
1 bottle of red wine- as cheap as you like.

Simmer everything bar wine for 20 mins
Add wine and simmer
Serve immediately into mugs or thick glasses for mulled wine/Irish coffee

Off to watch Wind in the Willows in front of the fire with knitting for the evening.
