Lambswool Wassail

As it’s party season and it’s also quite chilly in lots of countries at the moment, I thought I’d share this video I did as part of my “Tudor Cooking with Claire” series. It’s a lovely recipe and is perfect for a party or as just a warming drink, a nice alternative to mulled wine and it’s an authentic Tudor drink too!

  • 1 nutmeg, freshly grated
