DIRECTIONS

  • In prepared slow cooker greased stoneware, mix together sugar, rice, cherries, almonds, lemon zest and salt.
  • Whisk together milk, eggs and almond extract, and stir into rice mixture.
  • Cover and cook on high for 4 hours, until rice is tender and pudding is set.
  • Serve warm, garnished with toasted almonds and whipped cream, if desired. Serves 6.
  • TIPS:
  • Long-grain white rice can be successfully used in this recipe, but the pudding will not be as creamy as one made with arborio rice.
  • Use 1 cup fresh, pitted cherries in place of the dried cherries, if desired. Or substitute an equal quantity of dried cranberries, instead.
  • For a rich pudding, use half milk and half cream.
