The weather is not spoiling, it is gray outside the window, and autumn certainly does not resemble the "golden" one. The solution to the increasingly longer evenings and cold weather is ... - HEATING!

This drink has a long history, dating back to the Middle Ages. In Poland, Marcin from Urzędów - a doctor, herbalist and author of the "Polish Herald" of 1595 - contributed to its spread. He recommended drinking mulled wine as a remedy for colds, but also to strengthen the body. It warms up amazingly on frosty days and significantly improves the mood.

The following are some ideas for preparing mulled mead:


0.5 litres of mead (dwójniak - if you like your mulled mead sweet, or trójniak - semi-sweet)
1 lemon
1 orange
0.5 teaspoons of cinnamon
6 cloves

Pour the honey into a pot. Pour in the cinnamon and toss in the cloves. Scald the lemon and orange with boiling water, scrub thoroughly and toss into the honey. Heat, but do not boil. Ideally, the honey should reach a temperature of up to 42°C, as it will then not lose its properties. Serve in clay teapots as the mulled wine will stay hot for the longest time.
