home > recipes > dessert > rice pudding with dates
2 cups milk 2 cups cream 2 cups half and half 1 cup sugar 1 cup long grain rice 1 vanilla bean 2 Tbs rum dash salt 8 oz Pkg bite size chopped pitted dates 8 oz whipped topping or 1 cup cream whipped Instead of the usual raisins, dates are so delicious in rice pudding. In heavy duty sauce pot heat milks, sugar, vanilla bean ( split ) over medium heat, stirring occasionally until mixture comes to a boil. Add rice and bring to a boil again. Reduce heat to a gentle simmer and cover and cook mixture ( stir occasionally ) until rice mixture becomes creamy and liquids almost absorbed. Pudding will thicken with chilling. Remove from heat , remove vanilla bean and stir in the dates. Let cool completely and then cover and chill very well. Then place mixture in a large glass or dessert bowl and blend in the whipped topping or the cream that has been whipped to lighten texture of the pudding. . Garnish pudding with chopped almonds and maraschino cherries if desired. Serves 8 to 12. Note: if you want date nut rice pudding then blend in some slivered or sliced almonds along with the dates to the pudding instead of using as a garnish. For a lower calorie version one can make pudding with all milk or part milk and skim milk and use the whipped topping instead of the heavy cream.

NIce stove top rice pudding. Quicker than the oven baked recipe I have used but you must be careful to remove from heat early enough to allow it to stay moist. Question: Where does the rum come in?? Is this just to drink while you are stirring the mixture? Good Canadian cooking technique! I added it to the dates before stirring them into the pudding. Nice touch.
