Your mulled wine is very popular here, at the pack house campground, Smillie
For 3 seasons at this time of the year, it has been a real treat.

Garnish the mulled wine with orange slices ;)

That's good to hear, Rudy and Heather. ;) We haven't made mulled wine for ages, you could make your guests some Churros to go with the mulled wine.

(the ideal place to cook these is outside around a campfire, using a portable gas ring and a large old pot)

You will need:
1 cup water
2 heaped tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
50g butter
1 1/4 cups white flour
2 eggs, lightly whisked
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Fresh oil for cooking ( not olive oil)

Coating after cooking:
1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon
I/2 cup of sugar

Place water, brown sugar, salt, and butter in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Remove from the heat, add the flour and mix really well then add the eggs, a little at a time and continue to mix well.

Transfer the mixture in a piping bag ( a piece of baking paper folded and rolled into a funnel then cut end off, can be used) you and make fingers approximately 5 to 6 cm long, with practice you can make them longer than this if desired.

Heat oil in a large saucepan until a little dough sizzles when it is dropped in. Cook 4-5 churros at a time until golden brown, although first few times just a few at a time may be a good idea. Drain on a paper towel and then dust with combined sugar and cinnamon.

Enjoy! calorie count? Who cares!
