My son Todd has been bugging and asking me to make Rice Pudding for a very long time. It has been one of those Rice Pudding days many many days in the last two weeks, but my life is quite busy and it hasn't worked that I had the time to make it. I finally made it today. Most of my family just loves my Rice Pudding recipe. It is different than most recipes for rice pudding. It is REALLY yummy. This is my mom's recipe that she used to make when I was growing up and I love it too. (Colt, I know you will be jealous) My brother that lives in Minnesota loves rice pudding like there is no tomorrow.
I hope you all enjoy and give it a try. It is perfect for a day when it is dreary and cold outside.
4 Tbs butter
milk ( approximately 2-2 1/2 quarts)
2 Tbs vanilla
3 cups sugar
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 cups rice
4 cups water
bring water to boil and then put lid on it and simmer for 20 min, unless you have a rice cooker.
Mix sugar, cooked rice, vanilla, nutmeg, and butter together.
Add milk until it is real liquidy. Bake in oven at 350 degrees for about 3 hrs.
About every hour I add more milk and stir it up. It usually ends up being about 2 or 2 1/2 quarts of milk by
the time I am finished adding milk each hour.
I hope you enjoy!!!!!
