Personal Notes:
This is a recipe for a dessert that my maternal grandmother made all the time. Her mother was Danish, and that's the origin of this recipe. I suppose its origin is because they have a lot of different types of wonderful berries in Scandanavian countries. You can really make it with any type of berry, I guess. My grandmother knew how to make this by heart. It's probably one of those recipes she learned by watching her mother make it over and over, so she never really wrote the recipe anywhere. Anyway, I couldn't leave it out of any collection of recipes. So, I searched the internet and found something that I thought was similar and made it. It wasn't quite the same, so I've adjusted the recipe to include a bit more sugar. I think that would be more like the pudding I remember.
