Prep Time: 20 min ~ Cook Time: 45 min ~ Servings: 6
- 1 medium Lemon
- 1 medium Orange
- 5 wholes Cloves
- 2 pods Cardamom
- 1/2 cup Raw Sugar
- 1/2 cup Water
- 2 sticks Cinnamon Sticks, 3″
- 750 milliliters Red Wine
- 1/4 cup Brandy
- 1 whole Star Anise
- 1 small Cheese Cloth
- 1 small Butcher’s Twine
- Using a vegetable peeler, remove the zest from the lemons and oranges in wide strips, avoiding the white pith; place the zest in a large saucepan. Juice the lemons and oranges and add the juice to the pan. Place the cloves, star anise and cardamom in a small piece of cheesecloth, tie it tightly with butcher’s twine, and add the bundle to the saucepan.
- Add the sugar, water, and cinnamon sticks, place the pan over high heat, and bring to a simmer, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Reduce the heat to low and continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is reduced by about one-third, about 20 minutes.
- Add the red wine and brandy, stir to combine, and bring just to a simmer (don’t let it boil). Remove from the heat and remove and discard the spice bundle before serving.
