Time to Cook…Dutch Rice Pudding (Rijstebrij)

As you know we moved to Poland a year ago from the Netherlands and I do get homesick for Dutch culture and food.  Well last week a few friends I got together to learn about the culture from the Netherlands and Estonia. Well I cooked one of the things I learned to cook there, Rice Pudding or as they say it in Dutch, Rijstebrij.  The Dutch LOVE their rice pudding!!!  So of course I had to learn how to make it from scratch while we lived there.

Does this not look delicous?

    Kelley, That is a lot of work compared to the rice I make.

    1/2 gal whole milk
    1 cup uncooked rice
    1 cup of sugar
    1/4lb. butter
    Vanilla to taste.

    Using a slow cooker for one hour on high put the rice and milk in. After an hour put on low
    until tender. It takes 5 to 6 hours to finish. Add the rest of the condiments and enjoy

    Your rice does look good.
