Slow Cooker Rice Pudding

Stephanie @ Year of Slow Cooking

Ingredients

(Ingredients modified to include Aldi brand name)

8 cups Friendly Farms milk
1 cup Rice Bowl white rice
1 cup Baker’s Corner sugar
1/4 cup Friendly Farms heavy cream or Friendly Farms half and half
3 Goldhen eggs
2 teaspoons Stonemill Essentials vanilla
1/2 teaspoon Stonemill Essentials cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Stonemill Essentials salt

Instructions

I (Stephanie @ Year of Slow Cooking)  used a 4 quart slow cooker. Spray the stoneware insert with cooking spray, then combine the milk, rice, and sugar. Stir well and cook on low for 4-6 hours, or high for about 4. It took longer than I expected for my rice to become bite-tender—I did low for 3 hours, then high for another 2.

When the rice is tender, mix in a large mixing bowl, the eggs, cream, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Scoop a 1/2 cup of the hot rice mixture into the mixing bowl and whisk. Keep adding 1/2 cup at a time of the rice and milk mixture into the egg bowl until about half of the milk and rice mixture is gone from the slow cooker. Then pour everything back into the pot. Stir well. This is called “tempering your eggs”—you have to do this step, or your eggs will scramble on you when you add them to the crock.

Cover and cook on high for 1 hour. Stir well, then take the lid off of the cooker and unplug it. When the rice pudding is room temperature, you can refrigerate it. Some people like their pudding hot or warm, and some prefer it chilled—-it’s completely up to you
