Man! I can’t believe it, but the last time I updated my site was more than a year ago. With me, however, was a lot going on which somehow robbed me the time for it. From my final exam for commercial photographer, to our wedding, to pregnancy and lots more. Now my sweet son is already 6 months old and is madly interested in the food of adults.The food on the blog is of course not for him, but good tasty nutrition is motivation for me and my husband to get the blog back on track. Maybe not so often and regularly as usually but whenever there is time we want to offer you something delicious again.
The first new recipe is now available, matching the Christmas season with a particularly fruity punch. As long as I’m still nursing, I can not drink the delicious Glögg that you can find on the blog. So we’ve decided to come up with a delicious non-alcoholic alternative. There are so many fresh ingredients in it so that it is almost a healthy drink. I mean freshly squeezed orange juice, naturally cloudy apple juice, honey and even stimulating ginger. Well, I’ll admit it’s sweet, too, but that’s just fine with punch. And who still wants to save a little calories and sweet can take less honey. So now just try it yourself and bring your kids and you in the Christmas spirit.
- 34 fl.oz naturally cloudy apple juice
- 7 fl.oz orange juice
- 3 tbsp honey
- 1 cinnamon quill
- 2 star aniseeds
- 4 cloves
- 1 vanilla bean
- 2 cardamom pod
- 2 slices ginger
- 1 orange
Put the apple juice and orange juice in a pot and mix in the honey.
Cut the vanilla pod lengthways and add it to the pot along with the remaining spices. (Tip: give the spices in a teabag, then you do not have to fish them out of the punch at the end.)
Bring the punch to a boil and let it rest for 5-10 minutes.
Divide the punch on the cups.
Slice the orange and halve it. Put half a slice into each cup and enjoy!
