Rice Pudding with Cherry Sauce
1-3/4 c whole milk
1/3 c arborio rice
2 T turbinado sugar
3/4 c dried cherries
1 cup boiling water
In a saucepan, pour the boiling water over the dried cherries and let soak until soft (an hour or more).
Combine milk, rice, sugar & salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer until all the liquid is absorbed (about 30 min in my case). You'll have to stir frequently!
While the rice is simmering, bring the cherries to a boil and let simmer until most of the liquid is absorbed.
Serve the cherry sauce over the warm rice pudding.
Would I make this recipe again? Count on it! Even Cathy, who can do some serious cooking in her own right, pronounced this a success.
