Spicy mix for apple juice – Preparato per succo di mela speziato – WHB #418

Spicy mix for apple juice - Preparato per succo di mela speziato

January has been a very very wet month, it has rained almost every day.
But now and then the sun come back shining in a clear blue sky.
One of those days I made a lovely walk from Castelletto to Torri.
I started in the afternoon and when I got to Crero the sun started slowly to fade.

San Siro in Crero

I got to Torri with the sunset

The castle of Torri

It was at least three years since I did this track, so when I got to this place I was surprised that I even remembered it.

View of the lake from Loc. Cavrie

This is one of only two places where you can find the Cistus Albidus growing in wildness in Torri, or on the Garda lake.

I felt a little touched, so many memories, so many things that has happen, so many people known.

I found this recipe at Francesca’s La Tana del Riccio. Francesca was also the December host of Salutiamoci, and I was her tutor.

You need:

For 1 l of apple juice (unsugared)

1 tsp of star anise
1 tbsp of grated dry orange peel (organic)
2 pieces of cinnamon (Cinnamomum cassia)
5-6 cloves

Mix the ingredients and the put them together with the apple juice in a pot. Heat slowly until boiling.
Serve hot.
I can’t stop drinking it since I discovered it!

  3. We have apple cider through the winter here thanks to a local provider. This mix will really liven it up as a hot toddy.
