Christmas Rice Pudding Recipe

Publisher Photo
My heritage is Swedish and this recipe is known among Swedes as "grut". My Grandma Anna would make it every Christmas Eve, and we would eat it with cream poured over. Grandma always put a cinnamon stick and one almond in the rice before serving. Whoever found the almond was supposed to get married next, according to tradition.

"Added vanilla - and would use less sugar next time. Though it takes time, it is a very easy recipe."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 25, 2009

"A good recipe. I halved it and it was plenty. I would maybe cut down on the sugar just a little as it was pretty sweet. Also, it only cooked about 30 min with the 1/2 batch."
