Jazzmen Rice Pudding
8 cups 2% milk
Optional flavorings: Jazzmen rice is naturally fragrant rice, which is best enjoyed with no additional flavorings. If desired, the following may be added.
Vanilla: Split a vanilla bean in half lengthwise and scrape out the tiny black seeds. Add them, along with the pod, to the simmering milk before adding the rice. Remove the pod before spooning the pudding into the cups. Vanilla extract may also be used in place of the vanilla bean. Add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract in the last 5 minutes of cooking.
Lemon: Remove the peel from a fresh ripe lemon using a lemon zester or the fine grating side of a box cheese grater. Add the zest of 1 lemon in the last 5 minutes of cooking.
Orange: Add 2 teaspoons of orange flower water in the last 5 minutes of cooking.
Fresh Berries: wash some fresh seasonal berries and sprinkle with sugar. Allow the fruit to macerate for a few hours. Spoon some of the fresh berries over the cooled pudding just before serving.
