My favourite YouTuber Max Miller, of Tasting History fame, has finally returned to an orchard-based theme, with a suitably seasonal history of the tradition of wassailing and a recipe for making ‘Lamb’s Wool’, a mixture of roast apple pulp and warmed strong ale, sweetened with sugar and spiced up with ginger and nutmeg:
Lovely stuff. I’ll definitely be making myself a batch of Lamb’s Wool this Christmas. Sounds absolutely delicious.
