Christmas Time Is Here
Anyway the two will be playing the 51st Los Angeles County Holiday Celebration at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion between 3 and 6 p.m. on Christmas Eve Pacific Standard Time. The show will be on TV (KCET Channel 28), on radio at LPFK 90.7 and streaming at KCET.org.
The two had a long holiday interview which was interesting. I choose to include one part of it—their recipe for mulled wine.
“When choosing a wine for mulling, pick something full-bodied, as
heavier reds will better withstand heating and spicing. Cabernet
Sauvignon, Syrah or Shiraz, and Zinfandel. Port and other types of
fortified wine may also be used; however, when using these wines the
amount of sugar added should be greatly reduced or even eliminated
Mulled Wine Recipe
1 bottle (750mL) red wine
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup of raw sugar, maple syrup or honey
2 sticks cinnamon
4 whole cloves
1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg
Zest of 1 orange
-In a large pot, bring the water and spices to a slow boil for five
-Remove from heat, add wine, and then warm on low heat for 30 minutes.
-Make sure not to let the wine boil, as this will burn off the alcohol
and destroy the flavours.
-After the wine is done heating, strain through fine cheesecloth and
serve. Makes 4 servings.
Even though they say they just buy the packets at Trader Joes...Lazy bastards...
