Porridge with Plum Butter & Roasted Almonds

Yield 1 serving


Ingredients

250 g almonds (more or less)

1 dl quick oats

2 dl milk

1/2 tsp salt

A pinch of cinnamon


Instructions

Make the Plum Butter (see below)

Roast your almonds on 180 degrees Celsius for 15 minutes. Let cool.

Add oats, milk, salt and cinnamon to a saucepan and boil until thick-ish. You want the porridge to be slightly loose as it will thicken when it cools.

Add the porridge to a bowl.

Roughly chop the almonds.

Add a nice amount of Plum Butter to the porridge and add roasted almonds.

Notes

Why 250 grams almonds? When you are going through the trouble of roasting almonds, why not make a bunch? They are the perfect snack!

Plum Butter

Fruit butter is made of fruit and sugar, boiled down to a thick syrup-like consistency without straining the flesh from the liquid- you end up with a creamy and delicious consistency that can be enjoy wherever and whenever you want. A perfect way to preserve the gifts that autumn brings us.

Ingredients

2 kg plums

5 dl sugar

Instructions

Remove the stone from the plums and add to a saucepan together with the sugar.

Let simmer for 20 minutes or until the plums have softened.

Use a hand mixer and blend until smooth.

Let simmer for 3-4 hours until nice and thick.

Make sure the plum butter doesn't burn towards the end.

Keeps for a long time in sterilised jars.

Notes

You can use any type of fruit you'd like to make fruit butter- be creative!
