It is never to early to start making fruitcake or Glogg.
Glogg is the Scandinavian version of spiced (mulled) wine.
Spiced wine is served in a punch bowl and is often kept warm with a teapot warmer or canned heat.
It is served in small heatproof cups.
It is most usually made during the Holidays but anytime in winter it is welcome.
If desired, it can be bottled in jars and kept in the fridge to age. Fresh or aged, this is a wonderful traditional beverage.
I hope you try it and enjoy!
Uff Da!
