Apple gløgg consentrate

Gløgg is Norway’s equivalent of mulled wine. The traditional Gløgg is dark with a red wine base and seeped with a wide range of dried fruits and spices. This version is more like spiced apple cider and a little lighter than the traditional one and not as sweet. A bottle of this would be a nice addition to any food hamper you give away for christmas or just as small hostess gift for when you visiting.
I dried apples slices to serve with this drink and also to give away with a bottle of this concentrate.
1 liter good quality apple juice
1 bottle of white wine
1 dl sugar
3 cinnamon sticks
8-10 whole cloves
4  quarter inch slices of fresh ginger
1 vanilla pod
For garnish
Dried apple slices
Dried cranberries
Cinnamon sticks
If you want to make more just adjust the recipe.
Putt all the ingredients in a pot and cook to a boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer until the liquid is halved. Strain the drink and pour it in sterile bottles.
When serving this drink I take one part of the concentrate and one part juice or white wine or a mix of both.
Heat up the mixture and pour the warm liquid into glasses and garnish with dried apple slices, dried cranberries and cinnamon.
How to dry apple slices
Cut the apples in fairly thin slices and put them on a rack in the oven or a dehydrator.
In the oven you can leave them overnight on 50-60 C.
Super easy to make:)
