  • 1 cup whole rye berries - unprocessed

Combine all ingredients except raisins, ricotta and sugar in saucepan; mix well. Heat to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook, covered, for 1 hour. Stir occasionally; add more water, if needed, to prevent scorching.

During last 15 minutes of cooking time, add raisins.
