Old-Fashioned Rice Pudding

This recipe is so delicious! It's hopefully as close to my grandmother’s that I can remember. Delicately flavoured with vanilla and nutmeg, this makes for a creamy pudding with a rich golden skin! It takes two and half hours to cook, but on cold winter days how lovely to sit in a gently warmed kitchen, with the delicious smell of creamy rice pudding cooking for tea whilst reading your favourite book (if you have the time!)
