2 ice cube trays frozen mulled wine
2 tablespoons natural yoghurt or crème fraîche
There are only two things you need to remember when making your mulled wine into sorbet: firstly, you have to cook off all the alcohol if you want the wine to freeze. And secondly, it's important to give the mulled wine plenty of time to freeze, as the cubes need to be very hard for this sorbet.
Bring your mulled wine to the boil, and keep it on a rolling boil for around 5 to 6 minutes so the mixture becomes syrupy and the alcohol burns off. Let it cool completely then pour it into ice-cube trays and pop these in the freezer until you need them.
To make the sorbet, pop the cubes of frozen mulled wine into a food processor and give them one or two quick blitzes to break them down a little bit. Add your yoghurt or crème fraîche and whiz immediately until just blended.
Spoon the sorbet into little bowls or cups and either pop these back in the freezer to set a bit or serve right away with a biscotti or some lovely fresh fruit on the side.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
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.
