Welcome to another edition of our monthly newsletter.
Brrrr, it's cold out there. But with cold weather comes the snow and I do enjoy ski season. What is your "must have" in the ski field? In our family my son want his blueberry soup, the girls prefer warm Oboy, Sven need coffee and my favourite is glögg. But I stick with the non-alcoholic version in the fields and save the wine version for after ski

Are you, like me, daily viewing Facebook photos of friend overseas enjoying their summer BBQ?
The beauty of living in New Zealand is that not many areas gets snow blizzards, and we are blessed with those lovely winter days when it's as warm as a Scandi summers day. Be prepared and invite your friends for a winter BBQ.
What you need for a successful winter BBQ, with very little effort:
- Mulled Wine to keep your guests and the BBQ master warm while waiting for the food to cook.
- Gingersnaps with blue cheese is the perfect starter and goes really well with the Mulled wine
- Your favourite meat - just add some Santa Maria BBQ spice for the perfect taste
- Dessert suggestions:
It's easy to make a special Winter BBQ for your friends

This month’s featured product:
Brunneby Raspberry Drink Concentrate.
Made from Sun ripened Swedish wild raspberries - sweetened with apple, grape and sugar. Raspberries contain beneficial polyphenols and ellagic acid.
During the summer in Scandinavia, the forests are full of wild raspberry bushes, and it's free to help yourself.
The wild raspberry is smaller than the garden raspberry, and the flavour is much sweeter. The wild raspberry has a higher content of Ellagic acid, than the garden raspberry. Ellagic acid, which is a natural phenol antioxidant. Despite there being only a preliminary state of evidence supporting health benefits in humans, ellagic acid has been marketed as a dietary supplement with a range of claimed benefits against cancer, heart disease, and other medical problems. But please note -Ellagic acid has been identified by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as a "Fake Cancer Cure".
Raspberry Cordial is claimed to be a wonderful natural cure for a number of ailments which usually require antibiotics and other medications that have a number of side effects. In particular, Raspberry Cordial has been known to:
- Reduce sinus infections and sore throats
- Balance high cholesterol
- Cure skin conditions such as acne
- Protect against food poisoning
- Fight allergies in both humans and animals
- Prevent muscle fatigue after exercise
- Strengthen the immune system
- Increase stamina
- Increase metabolism which promotes weight loss
- Improve digestion and cure constipation
- Alleviate symptoms of arthritis and gout
- Prevents bladder stones and urinary tract infections
But for me - them most important thing is the flavour. Brunneby Raspberry Concentrate has the flavour of summer. If it has the above health benefits as well - that's just an added bonus
