This yummy treat is so easy-to-fix + ingredient-friendly & the crock-pot cook method avoids the usual muss & fuss. I was using sml cans of crushed pineapple w/flip-top pulls to open, 1 of them broke off completely & I could not get the can open. I had already opted to use the juice from the pineapple to cook the rice & that worked well to help adjust for the short amt of pineapple as the flavour was outstanding. I am sure it would be even more flavourful, textural & colourful w/the full amt of pineapple. I ckd it at 1 hr, gave the pudding a quick stir & ckd it again at 2 hrs. The pudding was creamy & nearly done, so I shut off the c-p & let it finish cooking (a method I recommend). I sprinkled the top w/a bit of brown sugar + the opt chopped pecans to serve. This is comfort food at its finest. Congrats on your *Football Pool* win & thx for sharing this keeper recipe w/us. :-)
This deserves 5 stars as an accommodating base recipe. I began by cooking a cup of arborio rice in coconut milk, the drained pineapple juice and a splash of orange juice. I used all the rice I had cooked, a 20-oz can of crushed pineapple and used at least a full cup of sugar. Three eggs and a pint of half and half was still fine. I used twice the vanilla and also added some coconut rum and some cinnamon, allspice, cloves and orange peel. Since there was more to it than the recipe calls for, it worked better leaving it on high for 3 hours. It was kind of like a pina colada rice pudding and was very creamy and delicious. Thanks for posting!
I made this for DH who's true fan of rice pudding. As I made it with regular white sugar it's all for him and this is his rating. It took 3 hrs 20 mins for me to call it set. I didn't have any crushed pineapple so I drained a can of sliced and "crushed" it in the food pro. I think that I should have pressed it hard again after the processing because there was a bottom layer of liquid that I could never get to cook in after more than 3 hrs in the crockpot. I did use more rice too (around 1 1/2 cups). Love the crock method!
