Traditional Norwegian Melkeringe / Tradisjonell Melkeringe

A recipe for a traditional Norwegian dessert recipe
found on
New Scandinavian Cooking
Traditional Norwegian Melkeringe / Tradisjonell Melkeringe

Andreas Viestad writes:  Melkeringe is a sour milk product, which is similar in consistency to pannacotta. In the olden days, melkeringe was made immediately after the cows had been milked, using strained milk which had not had time to cool down. It was poured into a milk ring which was a round, low, wooden container.

It was then set aside to sour at room temperature for approx. 24 hours. At the end of the souring process, the container was chilled at a lower temperature until it was served. It is now more common to make melkeringe using the method I have employed here, i.e. by adding a bacterial culture to the milk.

The plums are ripe here in Norway now so it’s time to use as much of them as possible while they are still fresh before starting to conserve them. Victoriatoast is a great way to use the mature plums. Serve this delicious dessert with cold cream or yogurt.

They all had dinner – fourteen of them round the immense three-pedestal table extended to its uttermost and even then they were crammed round it. They ate four roast chickens, bread sauce, mashed potato and runner beans followed by plum tart and what the Duchy called Shape – blancmange.

I grew up on desserts like these, Ready made desserts was scarse on the ground in the first 2 post-WWII dacades in Norway and what was available was both lacking in taste and quality. Besides making most of these is hardly more time consuming than opening some packages and mix and heat the content – Ted

Let the plums to play the leading role here! Heat treatment should certainly not be overstated. Mushy plums where you can’t notice a difference between the pulp and rind you can eat from a jam jar.
