Rice Pudding? Are You Kidding?

Part of my pantry is used for dry staples. Rice is one that I always keep on hand, and I mean real rice not that instant stuff. I doubt if that has any nutritive value. Wild rice and brown rice have a place on my shelf also. there are a lot of dishes to make with rice. The wild rice I use for hot dishes, soup, or as a side dish to compliment wild game. It takes a bit longer to cook, but well worth the effort.

One of my grandfather’s favorite foods was rice pudding, made with white rice. I recall my grandmother making it quite often. Sometimes she would spice it up and other times leave it plain to top off with some kind of berry sauce. Of course she made it in the wood stove oven. I had not made it for quite awhile until someone brought me something they called rice pudding. Naturally thinking about how my grandmother made it, I complimented that person for being so thoughtful. That was before I tasted it.

I held my tongue and did not say a word. It turned out that person bought something at the grocery store labeled rice pudding. To my way of thinking it was nothing but pudding from a box with instant rice in it. It was horrible! The words instant, quick, quick and ready in 1-minute do not fit my vocabulary when it comes to food. So I proceeded the very next day to show what rice pudding is.

I place 1-quart of whole milk in a 2-quart baking dish. I added 1/2-cup of white rice and 1/2-cup of sugar and a dash of salt. Then I turned my oven to 300-degrees, place my baking dish in a pan and added 1-inch of water to the bottom of the pan. I let the rice cook for 1-hour, stirring every 15-minutes. Then I let it bake for another hour and a half undisturbed. Making rice pudding this way makes a smooth textured dish, not the lumpy, nearly chewy stuff from the store. I made this for my children as one of the first solid foods they ate.

I invited my friend over for dessert that day. When I said it was rice pudding and not pudding with rice not a word more was spoken, except to question for the recipe and a second helping.
