Time: From 3/4 to 1 hour.

Seasonable at any time.

  1. 3 tablespoonfuls of rice
  2. 1 quart of milk
  3. sugar to taste
  4. when liked, a little grated nutmeg
  • Well wash the rice
  • Put it into a saucepan with the milk
  • Simmer gently until the rice is tender, stirring it from time to time to prevent the milk from burning
  • Sweeten it, add a little grated nutmeg, and serve

  • This dish is also very suitable and wholesome for children; it may be flavoured with a little lemon-peel, and a little finely-minced suet may be boiled with it, which renders it more strengthening and more wholesome.

    Tapioca, semolina, vermicelli, and macaroni, may all be dressed in the same manner.
