Scandinavians live in a cold climate. This time of year, they don’t see the sun a lot. I think it’s one of the reasons they eat so much lutefisk. Makes em know they are alive. But, to turn a nordic frown into a smile, all you need to do is make a little glogg. It’s a nice warming drink this time of year. Here is a recipe.
- 1 bottle of red wine
- 0.5 Liter inexpensive brandy
- 10 cardamom pods
- 1 cinnamon stick (broken down)
- 1/2 orange peel (dried or fresh)
- 1/2 lbs sugar (regular or lumps)
- 5 cloves
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/2 cup of almonds
Heat it gently for around 50 minutes. A crock pot can work well too. Then strain it through cheesecloth and serve. If you want to amp up the heat-add more brandy!
For those that don’t know what lutefisk is, here is a link. They get so much snow up in Norway, they cook everything to match.
