risengrød danish rice pudding

Risengrød – ricepudding, porridge made out of rice, sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar, with a knob of butter in the middle. This is food for nisser, and almost every child, and a lot of grown ups. According to the Christmas tradition of nisser, it is important to place a bowl with risengrød on the loft, where the nisser lives. We still do that, just in case. Everyone knows how much confusion an angry nisse can create.
