2 cups ruby port wine or grape juice
1 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup Sugarlesse™
2 cinnamon sticks (3 inches)
4 cardamom pods, crushed
6 whole cloves
Additional cinnamon sticks, optional
In a large saucepan, combine the cranberry juice, wine, raisins and Sugarlesse™. Place the cinnamon, cardamom and cloves on a double thickness of cheesecloth; bring up corners of cloth and tie with string to form a bag. Add to the pan.
Bring just to a simmer (do not boil). Reduce heat; simmer gently, uncovered, for 15 minutes or until flavors are blended. Discard spice bag. Serve warm in mugs with additional cinnamon if desired.
