Ingredients

1/2 c
uncooked long-grain rice
2 1/2 c
milk, divided
1/2 tsp
salt
1
envelope unflavored gelatin
1/4 c
cold water
2
eggs, separated
1/2 c
sugar, divided
1/4 c
finely chopped mixed candied fruit
2 tsp
grated lemon peel
1 c
heavy cream, whipped

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine rice, 2 cups milk, and salt in heavy saucepan. Slowly bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover; cook over low heat, stirring frequently until rice is tender, about 30 minutes.
2
Sprinkle gelatin over cold water in small cup; let stand until gelatin granules are moistened. Stir into hot rice mixture.
3
Beat egg yolks with 1/4 cup sugar and remaining 1/2 cup milk. Add small amount of the hot rice to yolks; mix well and then add to rice mixture. Cook over low heat for 2-3 minutes until slightly thickened.
4
Add candied fruit and lemon peel. Chill, stirring occasionally, until mixture mounds slightly when dropped from spoon.
5
Beat egg whites until stiff but not dry; gradually add remaining 1/4 cup sugar; beat until very stiff. Fold into rice mixture.
6
Fold in whipped cream. Turn into 6-cup mold; chill until firm (several hours or overnight). Unmold; serve with additional whipped cream and candied fruit.
