Go check out her pictures for the recipe, makes cooking look oh so easy.

I found this recipe at the same ladies site as above but not??? I don't know go see for yourself but let me tell you the recipes look crazy good and I think the site will be my new favorite.

So I LOVE rice pudding but don't care for the store stuff, or the rice pudding shop (think ice cream shop but NOT), and can never make it quite right. This recipe looks delicious! and so does every recipe after it, creme brule with strawberries in a White balsamic vinegar reduction!!! I MUST try that one! Oh back to the rice pudding sorry so much food so little time or room :)

Arroz Con Leche – Rice Pudding

Arroz con leche, creamy and wholesome! This rice pudding has flavors more typical to Spain, using fresh whole milk, cinnamon, and lemon peel.

Prep Time 15 Minutes

Cook Time 1 Hour10 Minutes

1 cup Brown Rice Like Jasmine Or Basmati, White Rice Is Fine
½ gallons Fresh Whole Milk
½ cups Raw Honey
2 sticks Cinnamon
½ cups Cream
3 whole Eggs
1 whole Rind Of Lemon, Grated
¼ teaspoons Celtic Sea Salt
1 dash(es) Ground Cinnamon Sprinkled On Top

Preparation Instructions

If using white rice, skip steps 1 and 2.

1. The night before, soak the cup of brown rice in 1 quart of water, adding 3-4 tablespoons of an acid medium such as whey, lemon juice, yogurt or kefir. I soaked the rice for 24 hours.
2. The next day, drain the rice and rinse in cold water.
3. In a large pot, add the rice, milk, raw honey, and cinnamon sticks. Bring to a simmer and cover for an hour, stirring every 5 – 8 minutes so the rice doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
4. Simmer until the rice is tender.
5. In a small bowl, mix together the cream, eggs, lemon peel, and salt. Add to the pot and stir for an additional 5 minutes or so.
6. Remove the cinnamon sticks and pour the contents of the pan into a dish to cool.
7. Once cooled, down place in the refrigerator overnight. The rice pudding should be super creamy and thick.
8. Top with ground cinnamon.

You can either eat the pudding warm as soon as it’s done or eat it cold the next day.
Buen Provecho!
