I have been searching the internet all day for a recipe for the Swedish Glogg that my gramma made. the ones I have found jsut dont sound right to me and was curious if you had a recipe or knew of one that you could share with me :pray:
That and the Hard Tack recipe I found also just doesnt "feel" right either.
I'm kinda missing my grammas special treats lately and want to try to recreate them.

Oh...
And she made these thin little cookie things with funny shaped irons and for the life of me I dont know what they were called other than "freaken amazing"

If your grandmother cooked as did mine (long time ago) she probably had her own little "secret ingredients" so you may find it difficult to find exactly the same taste...
I found this one but it has quite a few ingredients - I find the original recipes didn't have a lot of "fancy stuff" in them - just a few ingredients - good luck!
(maybe look up "traditional Grogg recipe"?

Erykah,Glögg is for Christmas,something I never really took a liking to.
We bought a bottle at IKEA around X-Mas time..
Here is a site we got from the bottle:www.1911glögg.se

To get an ö,you hold down the alt-button and press 1 4 8,using the numbers on your right-hand side.

Thanks to you both.
I know Christmas is quite a ways a way but it would be something interesting to recreate to perfection for the family ;)

Its a spiced wine that is made for Christmas ( or just in the cold months even)

Erykah,I am sure relatives would love Glögg,most Swedes do,very much a part of a Swedish Christmas..I just don't like warm liquor.
