Finnish Christmas rice porridge

8 servings

3 decilitres of porridge rice
4 decilitres of water
1,8 liters of whole milk
A small amount of salt
One whole almond

Heat water in a pot to a boiling point. Add rice and cook it until rice has absorbed all of the water. Add milk and heat the porridge to the boiling point. Lower the temperature and cover the pot with a lid. Let the porridge simmer for 45 to 60 minutes. Remember to stir the porridge once in a while.
Once the porridge has simmered, add a bit of salt. Add the almond into the pot and stir well.
Rice porridge is often served with sugar and cinnamon.

When eating rice porridge, most people try to find the hidden almond. The lucky one who finds the almond can often make a wish or gets a reward of some sort. The reward can be anything: having to sing a song, receiving a small prize or perhaps being the one to do the dishes.
