Hot spiced apple juice

I wanted to share with you the perfect winter drink. The one we drink as a family, after a snowball fight or after returning from a walk in the cold. The one that warms the hands and the heart… The one that is ideal for this time of year.
Finally, the one that should be ideal!
Instead, I’m thinking about a picnic that will punctuate our Christmas shopping day. For the cold, it will be necessary to wait.
For the hot apple juice with spices it will be without him!

We all know mulled wine. Hot apple juice is made the same way. Add the spices you like. I chose cinnamon, star anise and cardamom.
This is delicious! Young and old love it.

Hot spiced apple juice:

1 liter apple juice (as artisanal as possible)
1 nice tbsp of honey
1 cinnamon stick
2 star anise
5 cardamom capsules
1 small apple

In a saucepan, pour the apple juice, honey and spices.
Bring to a slight simmer.
Stop cooking and let infuse for about 15 minutes.

Heat again without boiling.
Add a few apple slices.

Strain and serve hot.

To finish: in spices, you can also use cloves, vanilla… And why not citrus zest.
