    evelyn/athens's Note:

    This is not your average rice pudding. There's a fragrant, almost floral, waft of scent and flavor that is imparted to the creamy rice mixture by the ginger, lime and honey. The toasted coconut and rum are the kickers, though, making it over-the-top good!

    1. 1
      To toast coconut: Heat a clean, dry frying pan over medium-high heat, add desiccated coconut and cook, shaking pan constantly, until coconut is golden. (Make a little more toasted coconut than is called for in the recipe so that you can sprinkle some over top at serving time.).
    2. 2
      Bring water, freshly-grated ginger, lime peel, salt and butter to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add the rice, return to the boil, and then reduce the heat to the lowest setting, so the mixture cooks at a simmer. Cook until rice has absorbed most of the water, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes. Carefully remove the lime peel and discard.
    3. 3
      Scald the 1 cup evaporated milk and honey in the microwave.
    4. 4
      Add the hot milk, honey, toasted coconut and chopped raisins, if using, to the rice mixture. Cook at a bare simmer a further 15 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in rum and vanilla extracts.
    5. 5
      Transfer pudding to a large bowl, place a piece of plastic wrap directly onto surface and cool to room temperature. Place in refrigerator until cool and set. Just before serving, 'loosen' rice pudding by beating in the reserved 1/2 cup evaporated milk with a fork.
    6. 6
      Serve with your favorite toppings.

      Sorry, this one didn't work for us. It wasn't sweet enough. All we tasted was evaporated milk and rum extract. The toasted coconut flavor was lost. Maybe if made with whole milk it would turn out better.
