From a Goggle Translation in a Finnish discussion list:

  • 1.5 litres of fresh 3-4 cm long spruce tips (pitkiä kuusenkasvaimia)
  • 6 litres of water
  • a dab of champagne  yeast
  • 2 cups of honey

Crush the spruce. Pour the boiling water over them and allow to cool to lukewarm.  Add the yeast and honey. Let it ferment for 1-2 days, strain.  Spruce tips are rich in vitamin C and make a healthy and bright-flavoured mead.

SpruceBritish websites refer to this as “Spruce mead”

A fast-food version of this involves putting some fresh spruce tips in your Finlandia vodka.
