Puerto Rican rice pudding



  1. Soak currants or raisins in rum over night.
  2. For best results, soak rice in 1 cup of milk for about two hours prior to cooking.
  3. Add the butter, salt, lemon peel, nutmeg, vanilla, cinnamon sticks, cloves, and ginger to three cups of milk in a deep sauce pan.
  4. Bring to a boil.
  5. Bring to a boil once again.
  6. Add the coconut cream, coconut milk, rice, and sugar.
  7. Cook covered over medium-low heat for about twenty minutes.
  8. Add the raisins, shredded coconut, and the evaporated milk and blend in.
  9. Continue to cook, uncovered, until the rice has absorbed all the water (about fifteen more minutes).
  10. Cooking times vary depending on your climate and elevation from sea level.
  11. Don't worry: this recipe is very forgiving of cooking lapses. Just don't overcook!.
  12. Pour into a square or rectangular dish about one inch high and allow to cool.
  13. Remove lemon peel, cinnamon sticks, and cloves.
  14. Sprinkle ground cinnamon or cinnamon sugar on the pudding and cut in two-inch squares for your diners. It is equally enjoyable after refrigeration. It will keep for several days, well covered in the refrigerator.
  15. Note: for a fruity variation, add 1 cup of diced mango during the last 5 minutes of cooking.
  16. Enjoy==References==
