Red onion

red onion with sprouts

January is a very dark month in Denmark. Rain, wind, snow, and often a gray sky – what a relief to find an onion who doesn’t care about all that, busy as it is with producing new sprouts. Spring seems to be somewhere, though still far away to the human eye.

risengrod ricepudding 480X471

Risengrød – Ricepudding for people and for nisser. It is important to give the house nisse his rice pudding, otherwise he could be irritated and perhaps even mad. When we walk around the Christmas tree, we sing songs, one of them is about the nisse on the loft and his rice pudding. Well, I understand if you find such a song  a bit odd for Christmas eve, but the nisse is probably quite satisfied, and we got used to it.

Would you like to hear it? På loftet sidder nissen med sin julegrød
