7-Recipe-Mulled-Cider-Concentrate-700x700Mulled Perry Concentrate


Total Time:   3hrs, 5mins (Prep: 5mins, Cook: 3hrs)
Makes:   1.5 Litres


4.5L Paracombe Premium Perry
3 cinnamon sticks
½ teaspoon whole cloves
½ teaspoon allspice berries
1 cup granulated white sugar



  1. Bring Perry, cinnamon, cloves and allspice to a boil in an 8L pot over high heat; reduce heat to medium and cook until Perry is reduced by half, about 1 ½ hours.
  2. Add sugar and cook, stirring occasionally, until reduced to 4 cups, about 1 ½ hours (You want to cook it no higher than 218°F.  If you cook it beyond that temperature, it will set into jelly).  Let it cool in the saucepan, strain, discarding spices and store in the refrigerator up to a month; alternately, divide among prepared half pint jars, apply clean lids and rings and process jars in a boiling water bath canner for 10 minutes.  When time is up, remove jars from canner and let them cool completely before handling.
