Curds and Whey

Dravle is tne name of a Norwegian dessert which consists of curds and whey. In order to get curds and whey, it is necessary to add buttermilk or yoghurt to a combination of milk, cream and eggs. Dravle is very easy to make.

Put 2 litres of milk (homogenized works best) and 200 millilitres of cream in a pot. Bring to a boil. Now whip in 600 millilitres of buttermilk or yoghurt, 100 millilitres of sugar and 5 eggs. Remove about 1/3 of the whey and simmer for about an hour. Add raisins if desired.

Dravle can be eaten hot or cold. I prefer to eat it cold. I enjoy this dish very much. I hope you do too.
