Rice Pudding

Rice pudding is one of my favorite desserts.  Many cultures have a unique way of making it.  I will list some of the alternates below.

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 can of goats milk  (or evaporated milk)
  • 1 can of condensed milk
  • 1 cup coconut sugar (to taste, only add as much as needed)
  • 1-2 pieces of cinnamon
  • 5 whole clove buds
  • handful raisins
Instructions:
  • Combine Rice, Water, cinnamon pieces, clove buds, and raisins and bring water to boil.
  • Reduce to simmer until water mostly gone
  • Add the milks and keep simmering
  • Add the sugar to taste as you keep simmering
Serving Instructions:
  • In Peru and a couple other cultures rice pudding is served warm with a light sprinkling of cinnamon
  • I like this both warm and cold, and both with a medium sprinkling of cinnamon.
