Mom's Creamy Rice Pudding

Yield: 8 servings


1/2 c long grain rice

1 qt whole milk

1 tsp salt

1 c evaporated milk

1/2 c raisins

2 eggs

1/3 c sugar

1 tsp vanilla



Wash rice well and drain.

Place rice in a heavy gauge sauce pan.  Stir in milk and salt.  Cook rice mixture for approximately 45 minutes, or until tender.

Add 1/4 cup evaporated milk and the raisins to the rice mixture.

In a separate bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, vanilla and remaining evaporated milk.  Add some of the hot rice mixture to the egg mixture (to temper the eggs).

Return egg mixture to the pot of rice.  Cook for an additional 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent scorching.

Spoon cooked pudding into 8 small molds or decorative glasses. Sprinkle with nutmeg before serving.
