If you want to cook this porridge the authentic way, cook the porridge and stewed apples  in earthenware pots set right beside the fire. Do remember to stir quite often and turn the pot to prevent the porridge from burning. You can of course make the dish on your kitchen stove as well.

Norwegian Traditional Velvet Porridge / Fløyelsgrøt

A recipefor a traditional Norwegian Saturday porridge
found on
norsktradisjonsmat.no

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.

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.

Oat Porridge and Compote of Dried Fruit / Havregrøt og Kompott av Tørket Frukt

A bowl full of steaming, old-fashioned oat porridge taste great with spicy fruit compote and a dollop of yogurt on top.

I grew up eating oat porridge every weekday as a kid. Mom soaked the oats over night and made the porridge in the morning. It was not a fancy kind like the one above, just plain porridge with a little milk and a drizzle of sugar, but I loved it anyway – Ted
