Recipes > Desserts > Rice-Milk



  • 3 tablespoonfuls of rice
  • 1 quart of milk
  • sugar to taste
  • when liked, a little grated nutmeg


Well wash the rice, put it into a saucepan with the milk, and simmer gently until the rice is tender, stirring it from time to time to prevent the milk from burning; sweeten it, add a little grated nutmeg, and serve. This dish is also very suitable and wholesome for children; it may be flavoured with a little lemon-peel, and a little finely-minced suet may be boiled with it, which renders it more strengthening and more wholesome. Tapioca, semolina, vermicelli, and macaroni, may all be dressed in the same manner.

Time: From 3/4 to 1 hour.

Seasonable at any time.
