rind of 1/2 lemon (or a piece of stick cinnamon if preferred)
4 ounces of sultanas
sugar to taste
1 ounce of butter
juice of a lemon, if the apples are not sour
Boil the rice in 3 pints of water with the lemon rind, then add the apples, pared, cored, and sliced, the sultanas, butter, lemon juice, and sugar; let all simmer gently for 1/2 hour, or until quite tender; if too dry add a little more water; remove the lemon rind before serving.
