vintage creamy rich rice pudding (pressure cooker)

Not Far From Green Bay, WI
When I was a child and not feeling well, my mom and grandma always brought out the "big guns" in their edible medicinal arsenal... homemade chicken noodle soup and rice pudding or bread pudding. I might not have eaten anything else, but one of those choices was sure to do the trick. For 30 years, I've tried to replicate my grandma's rice pudding. It was smooth and rich and so creamy. When I baked it, it was too dry. When I made it in a double boiler, the texture wasn't right. Yesterday I found the secret in a phone conversation with my 91 y/o mom... the pressure cooker! Perfection!
Ingredients For vintage creamy rich rice pudding (pressure cooker)
3cups of milk, half & half, or 1/2 milk-1/2 half & half
1cup long grain rice, uncooked
1pinch of salt
1/2-1cup raisins, regular or golden
scant1/2 cup sugar
- OPTIONAL ADDITIONS
sprinkle of cinnamon and/or nutmeg once dished
1/2 tsp. lemon zest (add before pressure cooking)
swirl of raspberry jelly on top after dished
whipping cream, whipped
How To Make vintage creamy rich rice pudding (pressure cooker)
1Add milk and butter to pressure cooker. Turn on browning/warming plate and heat until milk is warm and butter has melted stirring occasionally.
2Add rice and salt. Stir. Cover pressure cooker and lock. Cook on high pressure for 10 minutes.
3Release pressure, uncover and add raisins, vanilla and sugar. With power off, cover and allow to sit for 15-20 minutes. Raisins will plump and sauce will become rich and creamy. I enjoy mine plain, allowing the vanilla flavor to shine through, but feel free to customize as you wish. I don't like to add the cinnamon to the pudding because I don't think it looks as nice, and each person in our home likes it served a little differently. Enjoy!
