EINKORN PUDDING (like rice pudding)

1/2 cup Einkorn grain

1 cup water

1 quart milk

1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter

3  eggs

1/4 cup honey or maple syrup

1 cup raisins or currants

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

cinnamon

 

Boil Einkorn in salted water in a medium saucepan. Add milk and butter. Stir. Bring mixture to a boil, cover and cook slowly over a low flame for about an hour.

 

When it’s done, beat eggs, add honey or maple syrup, and vanilla, and beat some more. Slowly add a little bit of the hot milk and Einkorn mixture to the eggs. Pour the egg mixture into the rest of the Einkorn in the saucepan, stirring slowly over low heat until it thickens. Add cinnamon to taste. The pudding can be served either warm or cold. A slurp of cream on top is very nice.
