A vegetarian cookbook is an awesome gift, and we wouldn’t mind finding the new recipe collection from Arket under the tree. As a little tease, we’re sharing the easy instructions for a warm apple must with lots of seasonal spices – perfect for family gatherings.

Clothing and lifestyle brand Arket just released their first cookbook with a collection of vegetarian recipes from every season of the year created by chef Martin Berg. The book focuses on veggie dishes inspired by the New Nordic Food Movement – traditional cooking techniques meets influences from other cultures – made with healthy in-season ingredients that are ethically and locally sourced.
The idea is to inspire simple everyday cooking and “democratise healthy and sustainable foods for a wide audience in a modern and approachable way.” Yes please. The book is available in stores and online now!


Spiced Warm Apple Must

(10 servings)


3 litres apple must (unfiltered apple juice)
1 tbsp black cardamom kernels
4 cinnamon sticks
5 pieces star anise
8 pieces mace
2 tbsp fresh ground ginger
4 pieces lemon peel (no pith)
4 pieces orange peel (no pith)
honey to balance sweetness as desired


First, source high quality spices that are whole, not ground. If using whole cardamom, crush it in a mortar to remove seeds. Lightly toast dry spices in a saucepan over medium heat.

Pour in the must (apple juice) and bring to a boil. Add the citrus peel and steep for at least 30 minutes.

Sweeten with honey to taste depending on the natural sugar level in the must.

Strain and serve immediately or keep in bottles to heat up later. Garnish each serving with a whole star anise.
