This recipe comes from my friend's Swedish grandmother. I am told that this is how the fisherman warm themselves after fishing during the cold winter months. It is drunk hot and the fumes will clear your sinuses better than Nyquil could ever hope to. Caution-very tasty and very potent!
In a heavy pot or dutch oven, combine water, sugar, raisins and spices. Cook for a minute or two. Add port and heat over medium flame until almost boiling. Add rye and heat again until almost boiling. DO NOT BOIL!
Allow to cool and strain into prepared bottles. Add one of the cinnamon sticks and some of the raisins to each bottle. Allow to sit for a day or two.
