Rice Snowballs


  • 1 cup rice
  • 1 quart milk
  • a little butter
  • 2 tablespoonfuls sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoonful salt
  • essence of almonds
  • bright colored preserves or jelly


Put the rice covered with cold water over the fire, boil 5 minutes, drain in a colander and rinse with cold water; return rice to saucepan, add the milk, butter, sugar, salt and boil slowly till tender; add a flavoring of essence of almonds; when the rice is done put into teacups and let it remain till cold; then turn the rice out in a glass dish, pour over a cold custard and on the top of each ball place a small piece of bright colored preserves or jelly.

NOTE. The custard may be served separate in a saucer with the balls, but the flavoring of it should correspond with the rice. Vanilla or lemon essence may be used instead of almond.
