DIRECTIONS

  • Heat milk in 2 1/2 quart saucepan over medium-high heat until little bubbles form around the edges and the milk starts to steam.
  • In a separate pan, add rice and salt. Add enough water to just cover the rice, and place the pan over medium-high heat, cover,and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat to medium-low and stirring constantly, cook the rice until the water evaporates, being careful not to burn it.
  • Stir the scalded milk into the rice and add the orange peel, cover and simmer the rice for another 20 to 25 minutes, until it is almost done.
  • When the rice is tender, remove the orange peel and stir in the sugar, continue to simmer for 5 more minutes until the sugar is dissolved.
  • The pudding should be somewhat thick, like oatmeal. It will continue to thicken as it cools.
  • Pour onto flat serving platters or individual dishes.
  • Garnish with cinnamon in the Portuguese style: pinching some cinnamon between the index finger and thumb, dropping it close to the surface of the rice by rubbing the finger and thmb together, in a design or intials of the guest of honor and chill.
  • Serve chilled or remove from the refrigerator 20 minutes before serving.
