1 hour cooking time
makes about three cups
1 cup long-grain white rice
4 cups milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoons vanilla
Combine all the ingredients but vanilla in a saucepan and cook covered
for about an hour, being sure to turn down the heat as the mixture comes
to a boil so that the mixture will be just barely boiling. (Otherwise it will
boil over and you will be very unhappy.) Stir occasionally and remove from
heat while rice is still moist and sticky, but no liquid remains on
the bottom of the saucepan. Add vanilla and allow to stand covered for
about ten minutes before serving.
Typically served hot with milk, sugar, and cinnamon on top.
