Easy Creamy Rice Pudding! Mom's recipe!

I love rice pudding and I am not too particular what type it is but if you prefer creamy rice pudding instead of custard rice pudding then you must try my Mom's recipe. 

I make both creamy and custard rice pudding.  Our grandchildren love it too.  It is a very easy recipe and is so creamy, sweet and tasty.  We love to eat it while it is still warm many days and Mom sometimes would pour apricot nectar on it or you can do as I do and top it with real whipped cream.

Allow yourself some time to make this because the rice has to cook and you have to cook it on medium heat.  Allow yourself at least an hour and keep stirring so it won't stick to the pot.  

 No rushing this super delicious recipe.  It's worth the wait!

1 half gallon whole milk
1 cup sugar
1 cup long grain rice
pinch of salt optional
cinnamon optional

Note:  To speed up the process you can heat up your milk slightly in a large microwaveable bowl and then pour into rice, sugar mixture. Stir well and continue to stir while pudding is cooking.

Wash and drain rice.  Put milk in pan on low heat. Add sugar and stir until completely dissolved. Add rice to milk mixture stirring constantly so it will not stick to the bottom of the pot.

Cook on medium to high heat making sure not to allow rice to stick to bottom and burn. It will start to steam and bubble. 

Turn heat to low and let simmer slowly.  Takes about 1 hour from start to finish.   Place in large bowl to cool and then cover and refrigerate.  I doubt there will be much left of this delicious recipe.  Sprinkle with cinnamon if you like.

It is yummy!!

  P.S. Make sure you use whole milk, no substitutions or it will not thicken.

  Happy Cooking!,
