Rice Crem from Norway
This is Norway's delicious version of rice pudding. I got the recipe from my sister Joan's recipe book(All four sisters in our family have published cook books. I guess you could say we're foodies!) She made it for our family Heritage dinner recently, where we made foods from the lands of our ancestors. It was absolutely delicious: creamy and rich. She served it with strawberry sauce(thinned strawberry jam) on top. If you like rice pudding, you'll LOVE this one!
In a large pot, mix together:
1 cup rice, rinsed
1 quart whole milk
1 cup sugar
Simmer on low for 4-5 hours.
When it's thick, add:
Cool. When completely cool, add
1 cup whipping cream that has been whipped and sweetened.
Serve with raspberry or strawberry sauce.
Traditionally in Norway, a whole almond is hidden in the pudding. The person who gets the almond will have good luck for the next year.
