How to Make Lemony Rice Pudding
- 1Bring water to a boil add rice,salt, and butter. Cover,lower heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
- 2Then after the rice is cooked add:add: half & half,
sugar,cinnamon stick,lemon peel.Bring to a boil and then lower to a simmer and cook covered for 45 minutes, stir occasionally. Remove peel and cinnamon stick and transfer to a shallow serving bowl to cool. best served at room temp or slightly warm.
-Use a heavy 2qt saucepan.
-While short grain rice can probably be substituted, the arborio can absorb a lot more liquid without becoming mushy.
-I use a vegetable peeler to peel the lemon. It gives you long strips which are easier to locate and remove at the end and it peels thinly to eliminate the pith.
