12 Days of Holiday Treats: Mulled Wine Jam

The Twelve Days of Holiday Treats!

Once again, this year, from December 1st-12th I’ll post a new holiday treat recipe every day – inspiration for your holiday entertaining!

The recipes I’m sharing are small-er batch (perfect for this year when many of us will still be attending/ hosting smaller gatherings) – each recipe makes 1-dozen or a few more smaller-sized treats that are simple to prepare and that use everyday ingredients and equipment so hopefully you’ll be able to whip up any of these on a whim. Check out the treats from 2019 and 2020 at the bottom of this post too for more inspiration!

It’s the last day of the #12daysofholidaytreats and I’ve saved something a little different for last!

I’m a HUGE fan of mulled wine during the holidays and even last year when we couldn’t gather inside with friends, a small group of us would take travel mugs of mulled wine on neighbourhood walks to see the Christmas lights. Dedicated mulled wine fans, we are!

However, this year, large-scale gatherings aren’t really on the cards either so I figured – why not play with mulled wine so we can enjoy it at other times of the day… like… breakfast?

And the recipe came together pretty quickly – if you’ve got frozen raspberries on hand, some sugar, some wine and some mulled wine spices, you’re good to go – and what better gift this holiday season than mulled wine jam?

So, for a change from holiday baking, do yourself a favour and make some of this to enjoy on Christmas morning – or… anytime!

Yield: 1/2 cup (120ml)

All the flavours of mulled wine... in a jam!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Chill Time 2 hours
Total Time 2 hours 25 minutes


  • 2 cups frozen raspberries (250g)
  • 2 tablespoons fruity red wine
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons mulled wine spice
  • 2 large strips orange peel
  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar


  1. Mix the frozen raspberries, wine, orange juice, mulled wine spice, orange peel and sugar in a medium pot.
  2. Heat the ingredients over medium-high heat until boiling then use a potato masher or the back of a wooden spoon to mash the fruit.
  3. Eeduce the heat to medum-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes.
  4. Strain the jam through a medium wire sieve into a clean jar or bowl. You will want to push the mixture thorugh with some force so as to extract all the jelly but leave most of the seeds, all of the spices and orange peel.
  5. Allow to come to room temperature and then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
  6. Because this is not processed, you must consume this quickly - within a week (but that won't be an issue!).
