Easy Glogg Recipe
Here’s a pretty good glogg recipe for beginners. We like to call this recipe Glogg 101.
And we don’t say that disparagingly at all, it’s more of a comment on the straightforward and simple list of ingredients and the ease of preparation.
Here’s what you need for Glogg 101 …
1 cup of raisins, 3 sticks of cinammon, 3/4 cup of fine granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon of cardamon pods, 1 tablespoon of ground cloves, 3 bottles of red wine, and a 1/4 cup of blanched almonds.
Here’s what to do …
Put everything but the wine into a pot. Cover with water, mix to blend the ingredients and simmer for two hours.
Then, turn off the stove and mix in the wine. Let the mixture sit for a couple of hours to meld (2 or 3 hours is fine).
Now you want to strain the mixture to get the spices out (the cardamon pods and cinammon sticks), and also the raisins and almonds, though the almonds should be pretty well cooked in.
We use a slotted spoon to do this, but you can also pour the mixture through a strainer if you like.
To serve, ladle a serving into a mug and heat in the microwave until warm, usually 30 seconds is plenty. Enjoy the “drunken” raisins on the side as a snack. They’ll taste great!
P.S. – Make sure to crack the cardamon pods before adding them to the mix. You can use an equal amount of ground cardamon too but we like to use the cracked pods because the flavor is truer and better in our opinion.
