    I agree, add cardamon seed 1T. This is the greatest drink in the world on a cold, snowy night! The house will smell AMAZING!!!!! Put away the air freshener, put on a great holiday movie and snuggle into a big easy chair with your fluffiest jammies, slippers and blanket when you have a huge, warm cup of this stuff! Did I paint enough of a tempting pic for you? Good, now go make some, and tell the kids to eat the cookies you baked and stop bothering you for a glass of what you're having :-D LOL  -  02 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    With the addition of cardamom this is the exact recipe Mom & I made year in and out. Great memories now with every sip.  -  07 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe, along with the addition of cardemom, is almost identical to the one my great aunt made every Christmas. It was her Swedish mother's recipe and made the house smell so good!! (She even had a special white enamel pot for it!) Hint: tie the cinnamon sticks, whole cloves and cardemom in cheesecloth. Remove before serving and you won't get them into the cups.  -  28 Nov 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
