    Annacia's Note:

    Rice pudding with a mild orange flavor. I have never used the rum so I can't offer any comment on that part of the flavor. Chill time not included.

      This is the best rice pudding recipe. I originally got this recipe from Giada D. and the Food Network site. I have used a combination of whole milk, light and heavy cream - whatever I had in my fridge. I have also used dark rum, light rum and 151 rum. All with excellent results. I also used orange extract when I didn't have any oranges. I also added rum soaked raisins to this recipe. This recipe is a keeper.

      Well, I guess whole milk matters in this one! I used it along with arborio rice and all of the options and I got a very nice creamy pudding with wonderful orange and rum essences. I recommend eating it with the fresh orange sections...yummy! Also, I don't like a strong rum flavor and this was just right. Thanks for the was my first time using arborio rice. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.
