Hello everybody! I am currently visiting my grandmother in the capital of christ, Uppsala north of Stockholm. Living in Malmö is great for its multiculturalism but it’s good to see the “real” Sweden, especially in winter time. Lots of old traditions here. And today the sun is shining bright and the wind is biting my cheeks with fresh winter cold. Will it snow? Haha I’m at the library and there’s a man having a speach about how Uppsala is such a great town. But that is beside the very important point of the slånbärssaftglögg! The final outcome was a marvel and here is the recipe:
SLÅNBÄRSSAFTGLÖGG (Sloe berrie mulled qwine, or sloe sangria if you will)
For about a litre you need
5 dl concentrated sloe berry juice
7 dl water
2 tablespoon sugar (this depends on how sweet you want it and how sweet the juice is, mine was quite sour)
2 cinnamon sticks
5-10 cardamom seeds
3 pieces of dried bitter orange peel (pomeransskal)
Boil the ingredients for about 10-15 minutes. Enjoy with raisins and almonds!
Now my internet time is running out, I’m such a dedicated blogger I can’t believe it!
