  • Bottle of Red Wine (doesn't have to be expensive, maybe sweet or semi-sweet)
  • Cloves
  • Honey
  • Sticks of Cinnamon 

Cooking Instructions: 
Pour the red wine into a pot, and put it on the stove. warm the wine, DO NOT BOIL. Add a few sticks (2 or so) of cinnamon, a few cloves (for a 1L bottle, maybe 10 or so) and some honey (a few spoonfuls for now) to taste. Mix. Let it warm up for a few minutes, then turn off the heat, and let it sit for 45min-1hr, so that the cloves will have a chance to let their taste out. Then after a hr, reheat the wine to warm, NEVER a boil, and add honey to taste. 

The end result should be a sweet, spiced wine. 
Serving Suggestions: 
Serve in a mug when its cold outside.

Embrace Winter by Celebrating Kulig!

 In the Polish countryside, they don’t fight winter, they embrace it! Horse-drawn sleighs crisscross the snow-covered fields as neighbors host each other with a feast of food, music and drink. The merrymaking continues thru the night as each then joins in the cavalcade to the next estate where it starts over again. Learn more about it here. 

 We at PYTown love this tradition and have worked to replicate it. Last year we discovered the folks at Ma and Pa's in Burton feel the same way we do. When the flakes start flying in the winter months Pa hitches up the horses again for a winter adventure horse drawn sleigh ride served with maple coffee and homemade bakery. 

 When we come we add a little Polish food and beverage as well as the singing and dancing that happens when we are accompanied by Cathy & Tom Katrenich of Living Traditions. I hope you will choose to be part of the fun this year!.
