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.
Tasty crackers, crisp bread, flatbread, wheat loaf and rye loaf baked over the fire or in the oven were served with homemade butter, cheese, honey and ham. It smells fantastic and tastes even better.
Here is a Vikings recipe for crisp bread which are easily altered if you prefer baking your bread in a modern oven. Still, why not try bread making over a fire in the garden or on the grill on the terrace.
