Mushroom mulled wine

Rare chaga mushroom(Inonotus obliquus), that  grows in cold climates on birch trees adds soft taste to it and is also known for its immune boosting properties.

Estonian version of mulled wine has usually blackcurrant juice in it but any other dark juice(blackberry, blueberry) would add great taste too.

Not to mention that there was always some homemade jam there. Raspberry, strawberry and black currant flavours go really well with those spoon-pancakes.

I like using that drink making varous savory and sweet dishes as it´s always good to get some more good bacteria growing in the gut.
