Finnish Lingonberry Dessert: Vispipuuro

I decided to share another recipe! Here’s a dessert made from whipped semolina pudding and lingonberries, or vispipuuro. This is one of the finnish traditional desserts, something my mom cooks often, so it really reminds me of my childhood.

Ingredients for vispipuuro:

3 cups of water

1.7 cups of lingonberries (red currants are also a great choice)

0.2 cups of sugar

1/4 teaspoon of salt

0.5 cups of semolina

Put the water and the berries to a pot and bring to boil for 5-15 minutes. Add sugar and salt. Add the semolina while stirring and cook it for 5-10 minutes, stir a little. Then let it cool down. Use a mixer to whip it till it is nice and fluffy, pink pudding. Serve with cold milk. Enjoy! S. Heikkinen.
