When the wind is howling outside, it’s great to have a nice hot drink warm you up. During the Middle Ages, cider was a common drink up here in the cold lands of the north. People thought that all meals should start with something sweet in order to stimulate the digestion. Unlike apples, honey was expensive in medieval times and it was used for everything from preserving food to making fruit juices.
Boil the apple juice with the blackcurrants, honey and cinnamon stick. Sieve and serve in hot cups!
