Go ahead, try and say it...
And while I'm waiting I'm going to make my version of Rødgrød med Fløde. I found some pretty nice looking strawberries at the local store and threw them into a pot with some rhubarb and cooked them up together.
This is the rhubarb I found when I went to the 'big' city recently. I made some Rababergrod with that, but there was enough rhubarb for me to make Rødgrød as well.
I got so excited when I cooked the two together (rhubarb and strawberries), and tasted it. It tasted like my childhood, hot summer days, long warm evenings on the farm. A bowlful of Rødgrød for dessert with a little Fløde on top.
Traditionally, this is a summer pudding made with the freshest of fresh fruit, you go out and pick some strawberries, some red currants, maybe some black currents, in this case some rhubarb, cook them together with a little sugar and then thicken it with a slurry of cornstarch and water. Serve it cool or warm, drizzled with a little light or heavy cream.
I ladled some up into a bowl and added something I know my Mom would have used, if we'd been able to get it back then, Creme Fraiche.
And I guess I should confess, I made so much, I'm having it for breakfast too.
Well, fruit and dairy, makes a great
I wonder how it would taste ladled over some oatmeal?
