    Title: Arroz con Leche (Spanish Rice Pudding)
    Categories: Five, Spanish, Rice, Dairy, Citrus
    Yield: 4 Servings

    1/2 ga Milk
    1 c Paella Rice
    1 c Sugar
    2 Cinnamon Sticks (whole)
    2 Strips of Lemon peel

    Prep Time/ Cook Time: 1 hour cooking on the stove top

    I recall that as a child I would awaken on Sunday
    mornings to the sweet smell of rice slowly simmering
    in milk & sugar. It was such a pleasure to walk into
    the kitchen and behold the old pot on top of the stove
    bubbling away.

    I would occasionally try to sneak a taste, but I knew
    that the decadent dessert was far too hot for my young
    taste buds to handle. I knew that the wait would be
    unbearably long, but after a few hours of being in the
    ice box the simmering rice mixture would be heaven's own
    marvelous dessert. Although some would now disagree with
    me and insist that rice pudding is to be eaten warm, I
    still hold to my Mother's tradition and eat it as a cold

    Tip From Yaya's Kitchen: Do not use common store bought
    rice for this recipe. You may substitute Arborio if that
    is all the is available.

    In a large pot, add the milk, rice, cinnamon sticks, and
    lemon peel. Cook over low heat for 1 hour, stirring every
    couple minutes to prevent burning. The milk should just
    barely be simmering (If the bottom of the pot starts to
    scorch and the rice sticks, stop stirring immediately or
    the entire recipe will be ruined.

    The only way to C╟úfixC╟╪ the recipe is to use a ladle or
    spoon to transfer the un-burnt portion to a fresh pot,
    then continue cooking as before.)

    Ater about an hour of cooking you will notice the
    mixture is noticeably thicker. At this point use a
    slotted spoon to remove the lemon skin and cinnamon
    sticks. Add the sugar and stir gently until mixed.
    Transfer the mixture to a bowl for cooling.

    While this recipe is traditionally served cold after
    several hours of refrigeration to thicken, you may also
    serve it hot off the stove.
