This didn't work for me but I'm not sure why? I followed the directions to the letter .... after cooking a good 40 minutes beyond the posted time frame I still had a pot of liquid with rice in it. I didn't want to throw it away so I pulled it off the heat , added the vanilla and raisins , and put it in the fridge hoping it would set up once it chilled down. It did somewhat , but I still don't think the consistancy was what it was supposed to be. The smell of it cooking was wonderful ... I would love feedback on anything that might have gone wrong with this! I really would like to try this again!
