As the days shorten and the evenings cool we tend to shift to more robust red wines and many folks start consuming the last of their Rosé Wines. But rules are loosening a bit and Rosé wine with its crisp, fruity flavor is often served through the holidays.
This was a recipe that evolved from a Burgundy Wine Jelly. Mom had a number of bottles of Rosé wine left over from a party. Trying to decide what to do with them we opted to make jelly. It was fall and the addition of spice seemed to come naturally.
The aroma of the cinnamon and cloves immersed in this fabulous wine is intoxicating as it gently simmers on the stove. The color is as lovely and delicate as the flavor. Perfect on a spice muffin or toasted crumpet.
