What to eat in a Danish Christmas Market
Above everything else, the Danish Christmas market is characterised by fantastic food and even better smells. The air is perfumed with mulled wine – we call it gløgg – and it’s really not Christmas if you haven’t eaten more than your fair share of æbleskiver.
Æble-what? These are little round doughnuts that are dipped in jam and then dunked in icing sugar before being eaten. It’s a 100% Danish Christmas tradition, and while you’re unlikely to find them in other countries, you can buy them online at Scandikitchen or have a bash at making them yourself with this recipe from Nordic Food Kitchen.
Then wash them down with a homemade gløgg. This recipe takes a while to make (you have to steep the ingredients for a minimum of 2 days) which is a great way to make your whole house smell of Christmas!
