Ok, so the theme for this week's Carnival of the Recipes is "Danish". But I wasn't sure if that meant "recipes for Danish pastry", or "recipes for Danish foods". I'm easily confused. So, I bagged out of that path altogether.
My contribution is a recipe from Fooddownunder.com for:
8 cups hot coffee
1 cup Dark rum (use spiced rum for a little extra oomph)
3/4 cup Sugar
2 Cinnamon sticks
12 Cloves (whole)
Combine all the ingrediants in a large saucepan. Cover and keep on low heat for about 2 hours. Serve in bigfat mugs.
Now for the fun part. Serve this to guests, but make them ask for it in Danish:
|I'd like a coffee, please.||Jef vil gerne have kaffee.|
|...a coffee with cream.||...have kaffee med fløde.|
|...a coffee with milk.||...have kaffee med mælk.|
|...a coffee with sugar.||...have kaffee med sukker.|
Don't ask me for a pronunciation guide, I'm in a clue-free zone here!
