Tante Jutta's Griessbrei -
wheat semolina porridge

Tante Jutta's Griessbrei - (Sweet semolina porridge) reminds me of the times I spent with my granny in the countryside visiting her sister. In the evenings, Aunt Jutta used to make us from time to 

time this delicious semolina porridge that we as kids just loved. Sweet with soaked raisins, vanilla and some cinnamon we enjoyed every spoonful of it and always asked for seconds. Now a few decades later I still love this soup / porridge and from time to time enjoy it even with a twist as this african bird's eye chili, blueberries and mint in the picture above show you :-) But those are just optional additions and the soup is very jummy without them as well.
