Winter brings snow, happiness, gifts and.. colds. So here's an old Dalmatian recipe for preventing colds and sore throats.

Figs and wine for your cold


  • Handful of dried figs
  • Handful of carobs
  • Handful of unrefined sugar
  • A pinch of cinnamon
  • 1,5l red wine (Dalmatian if possible)


Grind the dried figs and carobs and add the sugar and cinnamon. Add the mixture to the wine and bring it to its boiling point. Lower the heat and let it cook for a few minutes, constantly stirring.
Let it cool and that's it!

Oh yes, the warning from the teaser description. So... WARNING, we know it's tasty, we know you love it but please limit it to a maximum of 3 glasses a day.

Extra tip: Dried figs will help you lower the chances of and infection to a minimum. Consuming the regularly will boost your immune system.
