Recipe # 1 Ruidenwischus


In a double boiler, heat together

1 cup semolina (tho' I imagine rice would work too for the gluten intolerant people among us)

2 cups milk (coconut milk for the lactose intolerant)

1/3 cup brown sugar

1/2 tsp freshly ground cardomon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp allspice

1/2 cup slivered toasted almonds

1/2 cup raisins (optional)

Bring to a boil then decrease temperature considerably; this thickens very quickly. Stir constantly to (attempt to) eliminate lumps.


The Geek thought this should have a Scandinavian sounding name tho' I can't recall many Scandinavian 'w's sounding like 'v's. I guess I just lack imagination. (Sound it out. The Geek chuckles about it whenever it crosses her mind. I guess we don't get out much)

I have a cold so I will be having this tomorrow.

As an aside, one of the Christmas cacti is still blooming. The other one was in a warmer part of the room so it didn't set buds at all.

Happy New Year and all the best in 2008!


  1. I don't think one should need to have a cold to have Ruidenwischus! It's far too excellent stuff! Can anyone tell how glad I am that Dale is such a good cook?

  2. For the next recipe, I vote for Lentils and Quinoa!

  3. yummm, sounds like a good one!
