Norway has never produced wine, so Gløgg with wine came from further south. Apples on the other hand…made with hard cider, apple brandy, vanilla, cardamom and citrus, this is a fantastic treat that warms the soul!

Another staple in the traditional Norwegian kitchen, the Flatbrød, an unleavened, wafer thin and crispy bread that was the sustenance for centuries. We still love it to this day!
