I am delighted to share another favourite Gløgg recipe, one that is suitable for people who do not drink alcohol, and also for children. A delicious hot drink enjoyed when it is cold outside, leaves you with a satisfactory feeling of hygge and it is so easy to make. The flavour is mild, slightly spicy and a lovely hyggelig beverage to enjoy on a wet wintry day.
1 liter of organic apple juice
1 dl water
1 organic lemon
3 tbs caster sugar
2 cinnamon sticks 5 whole cloves
3 cardamom pods
1 organic apple diced
50 g raisins
50 g (split) almonds
Slice your lemon, and put in a large saucepan adding the sugar.
Pour in the water, with the spices, and slowly heat up until it is hot.
Leave to infuse for 1/2 hour.
Pour the liquid through a sieve and put it back on the stove. Discard the spices and lemon.
Add the apple juice and diced apple – and keep an eye on the saucepan so it doesn’t boil.
Add raisins and almonds and serve when the apple gløgg is piping hot.
Enjoy – but do remember to tell the children to be vigilant as this drink is hot!
