From: The Finnish Cookbook

"Fruit soups, whipped berry puddings, and porridges comprise most of the everyday desserts in Finland. They are light, yet refreshing after a meal. Desserts as we think of them usually appear on the coffee table in Finland."

Whipped Berry Pudding or Air Pudding (Ilmapuuro)

3 cups fruit juice
1/2 cup uncooked farina
1/2 cup sugar
lemon juice

Heat the juice to boiling and sprinkle in the farina. Stir quickly to prevent lumping and cook slowly for about 30 minutes or until the farina is done.

Pour into the large bowl of an electric mixer and whip at the highest speed until very light colored, creamy and fluffy (about 20 minutes). Sweeten to taste. If you are using a non tart juice, such as raspberry, strawberry or apple, add lemon juice to taste. Serve with rich milk or cream.

Serves 4 to 6.

Notes: The favorite flavor in Finland is ligonberry, but cranberry or any other tart fruit juice will work. Should be eaten the same day it is made
