Rice Milk


  • 1/2 pound of well-washed rice
  • 2 ounces of sweet drippings
  • 1 teaspoonful of salt
  • a bit of cinnamon or lemon peel
  • 1 quart of milk


Put the rice into two quarts of boiling water, with the sweet drippings, salt, and cinnamon or lemon peel, and let all boil gently about an hour; then add the milk, and stir the rice for about ten minutes. A little sugar or molasses may be added if you want it sweet. It makes an excellent breakfast or supper dish, and costs about fifteen cents.
