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.
Strong experiences can sometimes be good and can serve as spices in everyday life. Here you have a healthy and tasty steak with beans and ruccula. Just the thing when you want to treat yourself to a good and healthy meal.

Cinnamon (/ˈsɪnəmən/ sin-ə-mən) is a spice obtained from the inner bark of several tree species from the genus Cinnamomum. Cinnamon is used in both sweet and savoury foods. The term “cinnamon” also refers to its mid-brown colour.
Cinnamomum verum is sometimes considered to be “true cinnamon“, but most cinnamon in international commerce is derived from related species, also referred to as “cassia” to distinguish them from “true cinnamon”.
Cinnamon is the name for perhaps a dozen species of trees and the commercial spice products that some of them produce. All are members of the genus Cinnamomum in the family Lauraceae. Only a few Cinnamomum species are grown commercially for spice.
