It was a great first party for the Community! Many thanks to all that attended. The winning discussion was around traditions and what families do every year. And from that discussion came…

Apple pie moonshine

1 gallon apple juice 

1 gallon apple cider

3 cups white sugar 

1 cup brown sugar

1 tsp vanilla

2 cloves

12 cinnamon stick 

1 liter everclear

2 cups vanilla or cake vodka

Boil all but alcohol. Simmer and dissolve all sugars. Cool. Remove spices. Pour into bottles and add 1 cinnamon stick per bottle.

Thanks, @grace.filkins for the recipe!

Thank you @kristine.kukich And now tell us what your favorite Glogg recipe is??? comes pretty close to what I remember, but we used more dried fruits - there were oranges and apricots. @ajblachford may have something different from her family.

There are many ways to make Glogg.  Here is my family’s recipe:

¾ Cup White Raisins (½ box)

¾ Cup Brown Raisins (½ box)

1 Cup Dry Prunes

½ Cup Dry Apricots

20 Blanched Almonds

16 Whole Cardamon Seeds

4 Cinnamon Sticks

Peal From 1 Orange

12 Whole Cloves

Cook above in 1 qt. water for 1 hour

Put in large kettle over high heat and add 1 cup sugar.

Stir just until boiling

Add 2 qts Morgan David Grape Wine

6 qts Morgan David Rose Wine and heat just to boiling

Add 1 bottle (1/5) Grain Alcohol (Everclear or Aqauvit). Stir and ignite and burn for 20 to 30 seconds

Take off heat. Cover and let stand for at least 24 to 48 hours in the large kettle. NO PEAKING

Strain with cheese cloth at least twice and Bottle.  Yum!

This is much more like my memory.

You can certainly use different, more expensive wine, but it all gets cooked down and does not make much of a difference.  It is just a waste of good wine if you make it with good wine!


We also sometimes add Brandy to this recipe.  It is just a starting off point!
