Annandag Jul / Den helige Stefanos dag
Staffansmäss/ St. Stephen's Day.
These are different names on the day after Christmas day.

In Sweden is "Annandag Jul" , just as Christmas Day, a holiday.
In Norway, it is called "Andre juledag" and in Denmark "Anden juledag".
In the U.S. there is not "Annandag Jul" as the general federal holiday.

Ris a la Malta.
Ris a la Malta is a dessert that is often eaten at Christmas in Sweden.
The name is probably a corruption of dance influence Risalamande, which in turn can be traced to the French influence Riz à l'amanda = "rice with almonds." It consists of cold rice pudding and mixed with whipped cream and flavored with sugar and vanillin-/vaniljsocker.
The decorated sometimes with canned mandarin segments or the like.
A variation on the right called "Apelsinris".
In addition to the above mixed in concentrated orange juice and / or cut orange pieces. Sometimes excluded vanilla sugar.
The rice can be served natural internationally, with nuts, juice, soup, jam, apple sauce or a sweet berry compote (for example, cherry or apricot).

Recepie :
1 1/2 cups water
1 Tbsp. butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup short-grained, glutinous rice
4 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 Tbsp. vanilla sugar or 1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. freshly ground cardamom or ground cinnamon
(1 cup chopped almonds )

Use first five ingredients to prepare rice porridge.
Allow to cool, refrigerated, for at least three hours or overnight.
Stir together heavy cream, vanilla sugar (or vanilla extract), sugar, and cardamom.
Whip until stiff peaks form.
Fold whipped cream mixture and almonds into cold rice porridge.
Pour into pretty bowl and refrigerate 1 hour.
Serve with Fruit sauce, Juice soup or Juices Cream.
Yield: 5-6 servings of rice pudding.

Fruit sauce is a simple dessert that is usually served hot or cold to risgryns-/mannagrynspudding, cheesecake, Ris à la Malta or rice pudding.
Fruit sauce made ​​of the juice of such strawberries, raspberries or blackcurrants or mixed juice, which is diluted with water and cooked with potato flour or arrowroot. A preliminary study on arrowroot gives a clear sauce, while potato flour gives a dull sauce. Fruit sauce is often confused with juice soup.
Juice soup contains the same ingredients as fruit sauce, but a higher proportion of water. It is served hot or cold and like rosehip soup, as is, or with such crusts.
Juices Cream contains the same ingredients as above but requires more precision and routine to get the right taste and texture. Juices Cream served cold or warm with cold milk.
