For the past few Christmas's, I've found a new enjoyment of sipping a hot cup of Glogg!

Glogg is a Swedish word for mulled wine. 

My recipe calls for red wine, a bit of honey, raisins, cinnamon, ginger root, cardamom seeds, cloves, and almonds.

What a wonderful, soothing drink to sip on when it's bitterly cold outside.

This past month, we had Glogg for Thanksgiving. I started to think, what do we do with all the mulled fruit when the Glogg is gone? I hated to throw them out. And so, I decided to take this moist, spicy fruit and nuts and add it to my cinnamon bread.

I made my regular, white-whole wheat bread. But I added all the raisins and half of the almonds from the Glogg. I also added about 1/2 Tablespoon of Ceylon cinnamon.
The mulled raisins and almonds give my cinnamon bread a spicier  flavor. Really works out well using these.
So, when you are drinking Glogg this winter, try using all the fruit and almonds from it to make a tasty cinnamon bread.
