I'm really not the right person to rate rice puddings as I've never really been overly keen on them but I have to say this was very nice. The mandarins set it off nicely with a delicious flavour throughout. Very easy to throw together and the end result was a great tasting dessert. I cooked on high but did find that after 2 hours it was starting to dry out so it may pay to watch, but then again all crockpots differ. Thanks for posting, my family really enjoyed this.
