Hello fellow curiousos. We loved Henry's lesson and ended up making 3 batches to bottle and give to friends for The Holidays. We used tangerine peals instead of orange peals because it's what we had around the house. We also used a slotted spoon (as suggested by Henry) to caramelize the sugar cubes because we didn't have a sifter. It was great fun and the Glogg turned out great. Thanks for the awesome lesson!! -Joe & Anne
