Almond Soup (Zupa Migdalowa)


  • 5 cups milk
  • 1/2 lb. blanched almonds, ground twice
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup raisins


  • Heat milk just to simmering in a large saucepan. Add all the ingredients; stir until well mixed. Cook over low heat 3-5 minutes. Serve hot as is traditional for Christmas. Great chilled as leftovers for Christmas morning (if you can get to it before John).


  • NOTES:
  • NOTES : This is an absolute must preceding any Christmas Eve dinner at our house. Everyone loves it...especially John. I wouldn't be able to serve Christmas Eve dinner if we didn't have this according to him. He's already started checking on my menu this year...a month before the event to be assured that even though he's not in Spokane to hound me anymore, when he sits down to Christmas Eve dinner, we wouldn't be missing anything, now, would we?
