    DAR Lady's Note:

    For years I tried to duplicate my grandmother's rice pudding but the flavor I was looking for eluded me.I concluded that the problem with the flavor had to be with the milk I used. After trying regular whole milk, cream and half & half with no success I remembered she had always kept evaporated milk on hand to use in place of the milk our cows produced because we sold it to city people. I decided to try mixing whole milk with a can of evaporated milk to see if that might be what made the flavor so good. It was! Now I had the taste I remembered so well. This is her recipe combined with my cooking technique and makes a fairly large bowl of rice could half it or it freezes well. It's cooked in a Bain-marie which is the fancy term for a cold water bath to keep the edges of the pudding from cooking before the center does. I also stir the pudding about every 15 minutes while it's cooking to keep it from be becoming dry.
