How to Make Port Royal Rice Pudding
- 1Mix the water and rice in large saucepan. Let stand at room temperature for 2 hours.
- 2Add evaporated milk, cinnamon stick, ginger, lime peel and juice, desiccated coconut and salt to rice mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir in sugar and raisins.
- 3Continue cooking for 40 to 45 minutes, stirring occasionally until rice is tender and mixture is smooth. You may need to add more water if rice mix is getting too dry or stiff and is not yet cooked to tender.
- 4Discard cinnamon stick, ginger and lime peel. Stir in the sweetened shredded coconut and rum extract if using in place of the rum. Spoon into dessert cups. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2-3 hours. Sprinkle with ground cinnamon and fine grated lime zest before serving.
