Glühwein recipe

My dad made this for me once when I had the worst chest-flu of my adult life, and it cured me within a day. The elderberry is a natural decongestant, and the warm wine cozies you right to sleep. But! It’s also just good on its own, sans death-warmed-over-feeling.

1 750ml bottle of red wine (I like Shiraz, myself)
4-5 tbsp elderberry jam
1 stick of cinnamon
10 or so whole cloves

Bring red wine to a simmer in a saucepan. Melt the jam in the microwave— make it really soupy— and then pour into the saucepan. Bring the whole thing to a boil once, then leave it on simmer. Drop in the cinnamon and cloves; serve when it tastes spiced enough for you.
