I love rice and so does my husband. We try to find different ways to prepare and enjoy this wonderful food. Through time, we found hundreds of recipes, some simple and some exotic, and have enjoyed preparing them. We've found some real winners, which I have published on this blog and some that are not so great, which are in my personal "do not" repeat folder. I have created this site to share those memorable dishes - which are all about this wonderful food called "rice".

Danish Rice Pudding

The raspberry-currant sauce is the crowning glory in this very rich and tasty dessert from Denmark. It is usually served on festive occassions, but it is incredibly easy to make.  What's great about it is you can use leftover rice to prepare and no one would know!


1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups cooked rice
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup chilled whipping cream
Large bowl of ice and water (ice bath)

In a large sauce pan, heat sugar, water, gelativ and salt. Stir constantly until gelatin and sugar disolves.  Stir in milk, rice and vanilla.  Stir for approximately 1 minute until all the ingredients are well incorporated.  place sauce pan in the bowl of ice water.  Continue stirring until pudding cools and mixture drops from the spoon is small mounds. This should take about 15 to 18 minutes.

Beat the whipping cream in a chilled bowl until it forms into stiff peaks. Gently fold whipped cream into the rice mixture.  It is important that pudding is cool before adding the whipped cream.  Transfer pudding to a ungreased 1 1/2 quart mold. Cover with saran wrap. Make sure saran wrap touches the pudding so as not to develop a skin.  Place filled mold in the refrigerator and allow to chill for approximately 3 hours.

Unmold rice pudding and serve with the raspberry-currant sauce.

Raspberry-Currant sauce:
1 10oz pkg frozen raspberries (thawed)
1/2 cup currant jelly
1 1/2 tsp cornstarch
1 tblsp cold water

In a sauce pan, heat raspberry (include any syrup in the bag) and jelly until it boils.  In a separate bowl, mix water with the cornstarch.  Gently mix into the raspberry sauce in the pan, stirring constantly.  Allow to boil for another 1 minute stirring continuously.  Remove from heat and allow to cool.  Press sauce through a sieve to remove any seeds or serve with seeds.
