Thanks Abby my 12yo son made this twice before he got it right. First he made it with long grain rice and I had to make adjustments. The next time he used short grain and it was great. Quick +easy with a great end result, cheers.
This recipe has a nice and creamy flavor. I did have some trouble with the cooking instructions/ingredient measurements. When cooking the rice (I used an extra long grain white rice) in the 2 quarts of water for the first 30 minutes, the water did not cook down as I thought it should-(I did allow the rice/water to come to a boil, I reduced the heat and put on a lid like I would normally cook rice). For step 2: I added the quart of milk to the rice/water mixture and after the hour, I was left with rice and what I would consider to be way too much liquid. I allowed the rice to cook down for another 25-30 minutes (with lid off) hoping some of the liquid would cook off. I ended up putting the rice-liquid mixture through a sieve to drain off some of the liquid, leaving about 1 1/2 cups of liquid with the rice ~ completing the recipe by adding the sugar and cinnamon. The next time I make this recipe, I will leave the cover off the pot in the initial cooking of the rice and would use less milk and perhaps add another 1/4 cup sugar to the recipe. Thank you for sharing your family recipe with us, Hill Family! I look forward to trying your recipe again, hopefully with better results next time : ) I've edited my review to say, that you really have to allow your pudding to set in the refrigerator for the full 4 hours before tasting. This is a very creamy version of rice pudding which does need to come together while cooling. Very nice, Hill Family! Thank YOu! : )
Yummmm - this is a childhood favourite of mine! Tastes great hot too, optionally garnished with raisins or fruit preserves.
