English Porridge / Engelsk Havregrøt

A classic breakfast porridge recipe found on food52.com
English Porridge / Engelsk Havregrøt

This porridge is just right. It calls for equal parts of two styles of oats, which means the steel-cut bits keep their pop, while the rolled oats melt around them — and getting them to the perfect texture only takes 20 minutes. Cooking with half milk, half water is enough to make it feel rich and loving, without slogging you down first thing in the morning. This will seem like a lot of salt. But it won’t be too much, because at the end you’ll add something sweet and something milky and it will all live in harmony.

For many Norwegians oat porridge is a good start to the day, but it might as well be enjoyed for lunch, dinner or supper. Adjust the batch according to your needs, and feel free to use another topping like fruit, berries, nuts, cottage cheese or similar.

Cranachan

A traditional Scottish dessert found on picturebritain.com317_Cranachan_post

Cranachan is a traditional Scottish dessert. It is sometimes called Atholl Brose (which is more properly a drink using similar ingredients). A traditional way to serve Cranachan is to bring dishes of each ingredient to the table, so that each person can assemble their dessert to taste. Tall dessert glasses are also of typical presentation.

It was originally a summer dish and often consumed around harvest time, but is now more likely to be served all year round at weddings and on special occasions. A variant dish was ale-crowdie, consisting of ale, treacle and whisky with the oatmeal – served at a wedding with a ring in the mixture: whoever got the ring would be the next to marry.

Oat Biscuits / Havrekjeks

A traditional Norwegian biscuit recipe found on dinmat.no299_havrekjeks_post

It is a pity that these biscuits are almost only being made for Christmas here in Norway. It is absolutely delicious and tastes great with Norwegian goat cheese or any other cheese of your choice along with a nice cup of tea.

By the way, this recipe was also my guest post at Butter, Basil & Breadcumbs’s  Cookie Monday back in early February – Ted

Roald Amundsen’s Oat Biscuits / Roald Amundsens Havrekjeks

Another kind of “waybread” found on matoppskrift.org551_amundsens havrekjeks_post

Oat biscuits is something no Norwegians can do without, so when Roald Amundsen planned the provisions for his South Pole expedition oat biscuits was probably high up on the list. It would surprise me a lot if the Norwegian goat cheese was not high up there too. Here is the recipe for the oat biscuits Amundsen brought.

Not all Christmas sweets are time-consuming and difficult to make. These enchanted pebbles are very easy to make and takes hardly any time at all. But remember not to do like Prudy and I would have done, and eat most of the sprinkles 😉
