My grandmother made this recipe all the time. My mother tweaked just a little. Every time I make it I think of my grandmother.

Ingredients

How to Make Vovo's (Grandmother's) Rice pudding

Step-by-Step

  1. In medium saucepan add the water and salt. Heat until boiling.
  2. Add the rice and cook for 10 minutes medium low heat.
  3. Add sugar, milk and washed orange peel.(The orange flavor depends on the amount of peel you add. I like a little orange flavor, my mother likes it a little stronger. You may substitute vanilla for the orange, but the vanilla needs to added after cooking)
  4. Boil for an hour on medium low heat,stirring frequently.
  5. Remove from heat and remove the orange peel.
  6. Beat a room temperature egg and slowly temper with the rice mixture. This prevents the egg from scrambling in the hot rice mixture.
  7. Once the egg is tempered add to the rice mixture and stir until the rice mixture is a very pale yellow, you may also add the vanilla at this time.
  8. Transfer to bowl and allow to cool. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
  9. Maybe served hot or cold.
