Norwegian Traditional Velvet Porridge / Fløyelsgrøt

Delicious porridge with long traditions. This recipe is taken from  “Traditionskost fra Ringerike” (Traditional Food from Ringerike), published in 1996.

Here we can read that porridge and gruel were widely used in theold days. Water porridge and milk porridge were most common everyday, while velvet porridge was usually served on Saturday afternoon. An old farmhand from Ådalen once said, “If theres no porridge, I might as well stay here.” He was out working out in the fields and saw no reason to walk up to the farmhouse to eat the evening meal if there was no porridge on the table.

Golden Kedgeree / Gyllen Kedgeree

A British/Indian recipe found in “Robert Carrier’s
Kitchen Cook Book” published in 1980

Golden Kedgeree / Gyllen Kedgeree

In India, Kedgeree (among other English spellings) usually refers to any of a large variety of legume-and-rice dishes. These dishes are made with a spice mixture designed for each recipe and either dry-toasted or fried in oil before inclusion.

This dish moved to Victorian Britain and changed dramatically. In the West, kedgeree consists of cooked, flaked fish (traditionally smoked haddock), boiled rice, parsley, hard-boiled eggs, curry powder, butter or cream and occasionally sultanas.

I know I have posted at least two recipes for British kedgeree before, but there are great variations to the recipes for this dish and Robert Carrier’s is a very delicious one –Ted

Coconut Butterscotch Pie / Kokos- og Smørkaramellpai

A pie recipe from “Cocnut – Sun-Sweetness From The Tropics”
published by Franklin Baker Company in 1928

Coconut Butterscotch Pie / Kokos- og Smørkaramellpai

Butterscotch is a type of confectionery whose primary ingredients are brown sugar and butter, although other ingredients are part of some recipes, such as corn syrup, cream, vanilla, and salt. The earliest known recipes in the middle 19th century used treacle (molasses) in place of or in addition to sugar.

Butterscotch is similar to toffee, but for butterscotch the sugar is boiled to the soft crack stage, and not hard crack as with toffee. Butterscotch sauce, made of butterscotch and cream, is used as a topping for ice cream (particularly sundaes).

The term butterscotch is also often used more specifically of the flavour of brown sugar and butter together, even where the actual confection butterscotch is not involved, such as in butterscotch pudding.

Chocolate Stout Pudding / Sjokoladepudding med Guinness

A recipe for a dessert full of flavour found on food52.com
Chocolate Stout Pudding / Sjokoladepudding med Guinness

A rich dark chocolate pudding that puts the store-bought version to shame. Why you’ll love it: You can never go wrong when pairing chocolate with more chocolate. Where this pudding exceeds the choco-norm is in the depth of flavor created by the addition of crisp, slightly bitter stout. Each bite hits the perfect balance between sweet and bitter – the only drawback is waiting for it to cool.

Fudge is a type of confectionery which is made by mixing sugar, butter and milk, heating it to the soft-ball stage at 238° F (116° C), and then beating the mixture while it cools so that it acquires a smooth, creamy consistency.
