I found dessert this especially for the World Tour. It looks ridiculously delicious!


  1. Heat cranberries in 1 1/2 cups water to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered until berries pop, about 8 minutes.
  2. Press cranberries through sieve to remove skins. return juice to saucepan. Add sugar, 1 cup water and the salt; heat to boiling.
  3. Add farina gradually, stirring constantly. Cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Pour into small mixer bowl. Beat on high speed until pudding becomes fluffy and light pink, 3 to 5 minutes.

Wow! Total winner here, this was so super easy to make and utterly delicious. Will make it again and try other berries and maybe pineapple juice instead of water and sugar. Very versatile.
I used millet farina to be gluten free, and it worked out perfectly. Thanks for sharing!

Easy! One could use a number of other fruits: fresh berries in season, peaches, etc. I liked the taste best well chilled. A good use for 1 cup of leftover frozen organic cranberries from Christmas time. Thanks for posting! Perfect balance of tart/sweet. Reviewed for Veg Tag/July.
