Risalamande Rice Pudding served in mini glass cups

Risalamande Rice Pudding

Risalamande is one of the most popular of all Danish desserts and Christmas dessert. This delectable dish is served every Christmas Eve following dinner. The name comes from the French, riz à l’amande, which translates to “rice with almonds.” But the almonds are only one aspect of what sets this rice pudding apart. The base is your typical rice pudding, but with a twist: chopped almonds, vanilla-infused whipped cream, and a silky sweet cherry sauce. Simple, elegant and absolutely delicious!

Made with Ralston Family Farms Jasmine Rice

Step 1

In a medium saucepan combine RFF White Jasmine and water. Put on medium heat and bring to a boil. When water starts to boil add the milk, vanilla extract, salt and sugar. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 15 min or until most of the liquid is absorbed. Make sure and stir during the cooking process so the milk won’t scorch. After rice is cooked, place in the refrigerator to cool.

Step 2

While rice is cooling, place frozen cherries in a small saucepan and add water and sugar and bring to a boil. While waiting on cherry mixture to boil, mix together the lemon juice and cornstarch. After cherry mixture reaches a boil, add in lemon juice/cornstarch mixture. Bring heat down to a medium and stir well. Cook for 3-5 minutes or until slightly thickened.
