Frequently asked questions

What other Christmas toppings can I use on my porridge?

You can use any festive flavours you like. I think a cranberry sauce would also be amazing with a bit of orange zest grated on top.

Is porridge and oatmeal the same things?

Yes we call it porridge here in the UK known as oatmeal in the US.

Is Christmas Porridge a Swedish thing?

There is a tradition in Sweden to have a rice porridge called Risgrynsgröt (RISENGRØD in Danish) on Christmas Eve. There is also a similar Danish Norwegian tradition.

A single blanched almond is added to the of porridge pot before serving. Tradition is that whoever finds it is likely to be married in the next twelve months.

Leftovers are saved and used to make a rice pudding to serve with Christmas dinner the next day.

What so healthy about oats? Nutrition Info

Oats are such a simple staple to add to your diet and they bring lots of health benefits.

Oats are rich in manganese, this promotes healthy bone formation, healthy skin and helping to control blood sugar. They are wholegrain, meaning that the good stuff hasn’t been removed, such as B vitamins and fibre.
