Malt is one of those things that's similar to Marmite. You either love it or hate it. I'm one of those people who alternate between loving and hating it. At the moment I'm in my LOVE it phase and as a result I've been experimenting with it.
I'm only really used to having my malt ice cold with a bowl of pounded yam, okra and a ginger based tomato soup. However, when it comes to winter, ice cold supermalt just doesn't cut it. So I reimagined it as a warm drink and the product is a sweet, caramel like potion. On first try I recommend omitting the honey and adding as you see fit once you've tasted it.
This is a perfect as a night cap or as warm drinking in the evening. I hope you enjoy it.
1Peel the skin of the orange (rinse with vinegar first).
2Pour the supermalt and honey into a medium sized saucepan. Bring to a boil.
3Add the spices and orange peel. Reduce the heat so that content can simmer for 10 minutes.
4Strain if you prefer a smooth drink. Then serve warm in heat proof glasses or mugs.
