moms rice pudding

This is my mom’s recipe for Rice Pudding. My mom has always made her rice pudding with milk and ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always loved it.  It’s the best I’ve ever tasted and it gets rave reviews from everyone I serve it to. If desired, sprinkle with nutmeg, cinnamon or simply garnish with fresh berries. Comfort food at its finest.

Servings 4-6

Ingredients:

1 cup short/medium grain rice

8 cups whole milk

1/4cup – 1⁄2 cup sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

Cinnamon, optional

Fresh berries (for garnish)

***The secret to any rice pudding is the timing of the sugar. It must not be added until the rice is thoroughly cooked otherwise it will forever remain hard.

***Do not make the mistake of using long grain rice the pudding will just not be the same!

Direction:

In a large heavy pot, bring milk to boil over med heat.

Add washed rice. Mix with a spoon. When the milk boils again, reduce heat to low and cook 35 to 40 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent rice hangs- especially towards the end of cooking.

The pudding is done, when rice and milk are well combined and turned into thick porridge-like consistency.

Add in sugar and let it simmer for another 5 minutes.

Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.

Pour into a bowl or cups.

Sprinkle cinnamon on the top if desired.

COVER your little serving bowls with plastic wrap “IF” you don’t want a skin.

COOL. Serve with fresh berries.
