'Ribel', also called 'Rebl', is probably the most traditional dish in Liechtenstein. Filling and healthy, this cornmeal-based delicacy was very important part of the poor population's diet in years gone by.
- Approximately 600g cornmeal
- 1l milk
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1-2 spoons of butter and vegetable fat
Place 1/3 water, 2/3 milk, a pinch of salt and a little butter or vegetale fat in a pan, bring to the boil and add the cornmeal. Stir the mixture, remove the pan from the heat, cover it and leave for around 15 minutes. Then, using enough butter, roast the Ribel in the same pan until it turns crumbly. Ribel is generally eaten with coffee, apple sauce, cooked cherries, elderberry sauce, compot or sour cheese.
