White Gløgg

Hvid Gløgg

It is the time of year, my most favorite, when you cozy up with a warm glass of Gløgg and munch on some delicious Danish Æbleskiver. Gløgg made with red wine is traditional in Denmark and taste wonderful but this Gløgg made with white wine and elderflower concentrate is fantastic. So if you can get your hands on some elderflower concentrate, which is sold by IKEA and a couple of online stores, you simply must try this white wine Gløgg. I used 100 grams of sugar in the recipe but it can probably be cut back to 50 grams, taste as you go along and see how much sugar you like. Enjoy and Merry Christmas to everyone.

Hvid Gløgg

Warm Gløgg

In the weeks leading up to Christmas there are many “get togethers” at work, in town, schools, clubs, friends and family stopping by to say hello. You can serve just about anything for your guests, really, or you could serve the traditional warm drink Gløgg and some warm Danish Æbleskiver. This combination is especially wonderful when you are coming in from the freezing cold outside.

Gløgg was imported to Denmark from our neighbors in Sweden and it started to take hold on the Danes in the years around WWII. There are many variations of Gløgg recipes out there and no one correct way to make it. Some contain brandy, cognac, port wine, vodka or snaps but the base is always red wine, although there are also some white wine versions as well as children’s versions. Back in the old days it was also thought to have some healing effects for winter depression, well at least for a short while 🙂

Gløgg

Ingredients:

1 bottle red wine

1 cup white port wine

1 tablespoon Cardamom pods

1 stick Cinnamon

8 whole Cloves

4 pieces crystalized ginger

1 1/2 deciliter dark brown sugar (1/2 cup)

1 cup raisins

slivered almonds

Directions:

Place the cardamom pods, cinnamon stick, cloves, crystalized ginger and sugar in the port and red wine overnight or at least 1-2 hours before serving. Before serving, gently heat the liquid on the stove but do not allow to boil. Run the wine through a sieve to remove the spices, then add the raisins and almonds to the wine and serve warm.

Glædelig Jul and Merry Christmas ♥
