Rice Milk


  • 1/2 pint of rice
  • 1 quart of water
  • 1 quart of rich milk
  • 1/2 pound of whole raisins (optional)
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 4 large table-spoonfuls of brown sugar


Pick and wash the rice, and boil it in the water till it is quite soft. Then drain it, and mix it with the milk. You may add the raisins. Set it over hot coals, and stir it frequently till it boils. When it boils hard, stir in alternately the eggs, and of brown sugar. Let it continue boiling five minutes longer; then take it off, and send it to table hot. If you put in raisins you must let it boil till they are quite soft.
