Syllabub for Christmas

No recipe image available.According to Wikipedia, syllabub is a traditional English dessert, popular from the sixteenth to the nineteenth century. In its early variations it was a drink made of new milk and cider, with the cows milked directly into an ale pot. This created a frothy cappuccino-like effect. A variation known as an Everlasting Syllabub allows for the cream to rise and thicken by letting it stand for several days.

Recipe Ingredients:

2 cups apple juice
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice
2 cups lightly sweetened whipped cream
Freshly grated nutmeg

Cooking Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, combine apple juice, milk, sugar, vanilla extract and apple pie spice; mix well.
  2. Fold in whipped cream and whisk ingredients until a froth begins to form.
  3. Serve in glasses and garnish with grated nutmeg.

Makes 8 servings.
