Ukrainian Christmas Kutya

Ukrainian Christmas Kutya created by Erin K. Brown

This dish should be prepared several days ahead of of time for flavour to develop. It keeps very well in the refrigerator for 2 weeks or so. Very high in vitamins.

  • The wheat is ready when the kernels burst open and the fluid is thick and creamy.
  • Chop the poppy seed in a food processor (or coffee grinder) (or you can buy ground poppy seeds in some deli's) and set aside.
  • Mix honey, sugar and hot water.
  • Mix the honey mixture, poppy seeds, and chopped nuts and wheat.
  • More honey can be added to taste.

    We have been trying various versions of Kutya every Russian Christmas for several years, and this one is fabulous! We finally found something to stick with! Thank you for posting it! I substituted the wheat berries for spelt berries and used some raw honey along with the regular honey. Yummy!! When we wake up late the next morning we add some whipping cream to the leftovers and have it for breakfast :)
