  • 8 ounces dry sherry
  • Zest from 1/2 lemon, finely grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

  3. Place the apple mixture into a food processor, and process until smooth.
  4. Transfer the mixture to a saucepan and place over medium-low heat. Add the remaining ale, sherry, lemon zest and spices to the mixture and simmer gently.
