I love rice pudding...Do you let it burn a little bit? Well not burn as such, but just a bit brown and crunchy? :drool:



God yes, then we battle for the 'skin'



YES!!!! My kids are always fighting for the skin and the crunchy bits :razz:


Nutmeg sprinkled on top before it goes in the oven makes for a lovely brown and tasty skin.

I can't get 'rice pudding' rice anywhere these days, I've looked everywhere. :dunno: All anyone seems to sell is long grain rice for savoury dishes which is totally useless for rice pudding, you need those fat, dumpy grains for soaking up the milk.

have you looked in the baking aisle? if you can't find it there, risotto rice is the same thing, they're both arborio.

It's not where you expect it should be, it's in the baking aisle usually with things like ground almonds, not in the rice aisle, and yes nutmeg is a must

it suggests paella rice as a substitute in the recipe I linked - all work just as well I'd think

Anyone like baked apples?

I loved them yet I haven't had one for absolutely yonks. My mum and dad used to make them for us, big fat cookers, cored out and stuffed with butter, sultanas and demerra brown sugar. When cooked soft and out on a plate or bowl, pour on hot custard and let the melted butter and sugar ooze out into it, they were to die for on a freezing cold day.

Calories? who cares, not me. :dunno:

I used to love Chilli but recently (last year or so) I can't seem to tolerate it anymore. I get terrible hurtburn now, like a sort of reflux that seems to last for hours and sometimes into next day. :dunno:

Regarding the rice puddings - my Mum used to make it using evaporated milk which made it nice and creamy. She always had a good skin on the top.

I never have a problem finding pudding rice in supermarkets. It's usually with the meringues, tinned fruit etc.
