Directions

  1. In a heavy saucepan combine rice, butter and water and salt. Bring to boil and cook covered for 10 minutes, or until water is just absorbed.
  2. Add half-and-half and cinnamon stick to above. Bring to boil, stirring continuously. Let simmer, covered, for about 45 minutes. The half-and-half should be almost absorbed.
  3. The results should be creamy and tender, not mushy. Add the extra butter, and some cream for extra richness.
  4. Before serving, hide the almond in the porridge.
  5. Serve the porridge hot, with warm cream, cinnamon, and sugar. Whoever gets the almond will be married within the year!
