  • 2 litres good-quality traditional cider

  • 6 cloves

  • 3-4 star anise

  • ¼ nutmeg, finely grated into the pan

  • 1 cinnamon stick

  • 1 vanilla pod, halved

  • juice of 1 orange

  • juice of 2 clementines

  • 1 pomegranate, juice and seeds of

  • 4–5 tablespoons caster sugar

Pour the cider into a large pan on a low heat and let it warm through for a few minutes. Add all the spices and juices and turn the heat up. Once boiling, turn down to a simmer and leave to tick away for 5–8 minutes.



As everything infuses you'll get delicious layers of flavour. Taste it and add sugar as you like. You don't want it sweet; you just want the sugar to join the spices in a harmonious taste. When you're happy with the flavours, ladle into glasses or mugs and serve warm.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Close

Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.

When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
