Happy St. Nicholas Day in advance to all members of the board, old and new! (Wed. Dec. 6, 2012)

It has been a pleasure getting to know you all on the road through struggles and triumphs of body and spirit. This is why I would like to present you with the following "hot or cold" recepie for your winter "solace-tice" that is guaranteed to brighten up moods, delight your family and guests, and grant you many happy and contented tummies of the day. The base ingredient -- I cannot change ( I apologise, as per my SWAMI), but to those who can use, or even FURTHER modify, we proudly unveil, from the Shoaf House kitchen......

ST. NICHOLAS DAY PORRIDGE

6TB precooked "minute" tapioca
3 C. almond milk (temp. does not matter)
1-2 TB local honey
1 tsp poppy seed (dark)
2 generous dashes ground nutmeg
1 generous dash ground cloves
1/4 tsp real or imitation Jamaican Rum flavoring

IF MAKING FOR PUDDING, ADD:

1 egg, well beaten
1/2 tsp. imitation or real vanilla flavoring
1/2 tsp. ghee

TO PREPARE:

Stir all wet and dry ingredients together in a 2 quart saucepan, and set aside for 6 minutes for tapioca to soften. Stirring constantly, bring to high heat until a rolling boil of the porridge is achieved; reduce heat somewhat and stir rapidly for 2 minutes until porridge is reduced a bit in liquid. Immediately remove from heat and set aside for porridge to cool and expand. Can be served hot to family for holiday breakfast, or chilled in decorative cups and garnished with
berries, dried fruit, nuts, or even cream as an accent. Makes 4 1 Cup portions.

Serraffa,

Happy St. Nick's Day to you to!!!

My family celebrates this every year, although not always on the actual day if it falls during the week.  My mom has us all over for dinner and everyone brings an ornament for giving.

It's amazing how many people i've told about this who have never heard of it.  Nice to know someone else who celebrates it.

Nice recipe!.

Hey Mickey! Glad to hear from you as well! That's a great tradition.....I'm the only one at my house that celebrates it. Maybe you've already seen it, or maybe not, but I like to refer people to "the St. Nicholas Center" online; they have a free screensaver for your PC and TONS of stories and information. http://www.stnicholascenter.org/pages/home/
I've been counting down to the "big day" for 84 days now!!!  
IN PARTCULAR -- I am so grateful for the forensic reconstruction of the gentle Wonderworker's face, compared to the traditional icons we have had of him for centuries in our Church. Take a look!!!!  http://www.stnicholascenter.org/pages/real-face/

Nice recipe.  Wondering if you could sub chia seeds for the tapioca....gets gelatinous just like tapioca. Sounds good!

Seraffa,

Thanks for the great website links!.  I'm going to forward them onto my family, i don't think everyone knows the whole background of St. Nick's Day, especially the kids.

Yummo, Seraffa, thanks!!!!
Tapioca is a black dot for me but it is my favorite pudding!!!!

Happy St. Nicholas day to you as well!
I actually have heard the story  ...even named my youngest after 2 of my favorite Saints!  "Nicholas Anthony"  
My first favorite Saint has to be the one who's feast day was just 2 days ago.
St. Francis Xavier ( of the Xavier's from Navarre...Basque Spain and France)
I am honored to claim his brother, Valentine Xavier, as my grandather, 10 generations back! He fled to England after the St. Bartholomew Massacre. The family changed the spelling to Sevier before coming to America.
