Welcome to another Tip Tuesday!
In light of the tragedies in Norway this week, I wanted to highlight some of the great things about Norway, one of the nations represented in Epcot's World Showcase.
As I thought about all the things about the Norway pavilion my family and I enjoy, one particular item came to mind: Rice Cream!
This is a classic Norwegian dessert and can be found both at the Akershus Royal Banquet Hall and at the Kringla Bakery.
Rice cream is a must-do for my family. Every trip to Walt Disney World includes at least one dish of rice cream. We enjoy this Norwegian delight so much, I've even tried my hand a few times at making our own rice cream using the actual recipe used at Epcot's Norway pavilion.
I highly recommend giving rice cream a try - it's just one more example of the charm of Epcot and how Epcot truly brings the world to you.
If you can't make it to Epcot to try rice cream -- try it for yourself. Here's the recipe (courtesy Allears.net)!
YIELD: 10 servings
1 pound short-grain white rice (not instant)
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups water
4 cups milk
2 cups heavy cream
4 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups strawberry preserves
1 cup water
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1. Cook rice with water and salt for 15 minutes, covered. Add milk and cook for 30 minutes or until rice is tender and the mixture is thick. Chill rice in the refrigerator.
2. Whip cream and sugar and vanilla. Gently fold whipped cream into chilled rice. Set aside in refrigerator.
3. Place sauce ingredients in the work bowl of a blender. Mix until combined.
4. Spoon rice mixture into serving cups. Garnish with strawberry sauce.
