January 19, 2020 | ChristmasPhotographyPorridgeRecipe




Try the Norwegian traditional Rice Porridge this Christmas- combined with sugar, cinnamon and butter this is the perfect Christmas treat! Rice Porridge is served all year with different condiments – during summer it’s usually served with cured meats and Norwegian flat bread and during Christmas it’s served alone. Remember to use any left overs for the Danish “Ris alamande” or the Norwegian “Riskrem”.
