January is finally over, and we’re celebrating with two of our favorite things: Chocolate & Wine.
This indulgent twist on mulled wine uses our very own Jansal Valley Chocolate Mint Infused Coastal Honey, which we make with herbs from our very own Wainer Family Farm in South Dartmouth, MA.
Chocolate Mint Mulled Wine
2 T Jansal Valley Chocolate Mint Infused Coastal Honey
2 T Lemon Juice
1 T Mulling Spices
1 bottle dry Red Wine, such as merlot or pinot noir
2 shots Blackberry Brandy
In a sauce pan, gently warm the wine, honey, lemon juice, mulling spices, and brandy over low heat for 10-15 minutes, or until warm.
Add a wedge of lemon to six wine glasses, then carefully ladle about 1 cup of the mulled wine into each glass.
Just like the more familiar Broccoli Rabe, or rapini, the word rabe for both of these two produce items signifies mature, heartier leaves more unruly than standard Arugula or Mustard Greens.
They're both super easy to work with-just requiring a quick rinse and dry before using. The quality of both is excellent right now and neither require much trimming or sorting.
These items are only available while in season, to see what’s currently in stock, check here.
