"There's too much liquid", you're going to say. Trust me....this will work out to be the creamiest rice pudding you've ever made. Stir once in a while to prevent any rice from sticking to the bottom, and use a large pot to avoid the mixture from boiling over. Short grain rice will produce a creamier pudding then brown or long grain. The cooking time may seem long and tedious, but because it cooks at the lowest setting, it does not need constant supervision. Another wonderful recipe from her Heart Smart Cookbook.

- 1⁄2 cup rice, short-grain is best

- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- 1⁄16 teaspoon salt
