Christmas Porridge / Julegrøt

A traditional Norwegian Christmas recipe found in “Jul I Huset”
(Christmas In The House) published by Hjemmets Kokebok Klubb in 1984

This kind of Christmas porridge has a long tradition in many families in Norway, but not as dinner, but lunch, on the 24th. And in that porridge many hide a peeled almond and the one that finds it in their porridge wins a prize. In my family as in many others that prize is a huge marzipan pig.
