Stove Top Rice Pudding Using Uncooked Rice

Rice Pudding

When I was a kid Mom would make rice pudding as a special treat. This recipe is similar to how she made it. Enjoy it as much as we did growing up.

Stove-Top Rice Pudding Using Uncooked Rice

I have several different recipes here for rice pudding. If I order Chinese take=out, I always end up with left over rice and one idea is to make Rice Pudding using Cooked Rice out if it, Of course left over rice is great for making fried rice too. But when I get the urge for Rice Pudding, I always seem to have no cooked rice around. So here is a simple recipe to make it on the Stove-top. (There is not much difference in making Rice Pudding using cooked or uncooked rice. Sure you get a jump when you use cooked rice, but rice only take 20 minutes to cook, so it is not that much of a jump. )

This Stove-Top Rice Pudding Using Uncooked Rice is cooked on the stove top. I don’t know about you, but I hate the extra dish I have to wash when I bake it in the oven. Give me a stove-top recipe and I am good to go. Sure it might be a little more work, but overall it’s a piece of cake.

Pickled Eggs (Red Beet Pickled Eggs)

Growing up in the middle of Pennsylvania Dutch Country and the Pennsylvania Coal Region, pickled eggs (red beet eggs) were served at any picnic or major get together. Hard boiled eggs are pickled in a mixture of vinegar, sugar and red beet juice along with red beets and additional water. Sure the eggs with be red in color in a few hours, but for the best flavor leave them infuse for at least three days. Nothing beets a pickled egg when the white has turned red all the way through to the yolk and it is infused with the sweet pickle flavor. Give it a try. Don’t throw out the left over pickle juice, It taste great by itself.
