Scandinavian Rice Pudding

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by kolleen1021

This is a recipe my grandmother taught me to use up leftover rice. It's a bit different from the usual rice pudding, but it's easy and very tasty. This recipe calls for raisins, but you can omit them or substitute other dried fruits like cranberries if you prefer. Please note that the prep time does not include the time needed to cook the rice. I usually use leftovers.

Have not yet made this, but definitely intend to, because it sounds exactly like what my Mormor (Mother's mother) made for me when I was a little girl! To me, this was a very special treat. Little did I know that Mormor was using her left over rice! This recipe sounds like I will be eating a delightful bowl of "Swedish Nostalgia"!
