Arroz con dulce (Sweet rice pudding, Puerto Rican style)

4 cups water
1 teaspoonful salt
1 teaspoonful cloves
1 tablespoonful crushed fresh ginger

1 14-oz can coconut cream such as Coco Lopez
1 cup regular, uncooked, short-grain rice
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoonful cooking oil (optional)

1/2 cup raisins

For best results, soak rice in water for about two hours prior to
cooking. Drain.

Add the salt, cloves and ginger to three cups of water in a deep
sauce pan. Bring to a boil. Sieve through a colander to remove the
remnants of the spices.

Bring to a boil once again. Add the coconut cream, rice, sugar and
oil. Cook covered over medium-low heat for about twenty minutes.
Add the raisins and blend in. Continue to cook, uncovered, until
the rice has absorbed all the water (about fifteen more minutes).

Cooking times vary depending on your climate and elevation from
sea level. Don't worry: this recipe is very forgiving of cooking
lapses. Just don't overcook!

Pour into a square or rectangular dish about one inch high and
allow to cool. Sprinkle ground cinnamon or cinnamon sugar on the
pudding and cut in two-inch squares for your diners.

It is equally enjoyable after refrigeration. It will keep for
several days, well covered in the refrigerator.

mom's old style arroz con dulce, December 6, 2004 - 02:49 PM
Reviewer: Angie from Glendale, NY
My mom passed away many years ago and I remembered that for christmas she would make alot of arroz con dulce and give it out to family and friends. I searched around looking for recipes but could find none like hers. I had an idea of what ingredients she used but did not have any idea on the specific amounts (tsp, cups, etc.) Your recipe worked perfectly.

Reviewer: Anonymous from Washington, DC
This has been a long time favorite of mine that my mami used to make. I like mine served warm & soft and it is worth the wait for this fantastic dessert.

Water about the water, March 6, 2006 - 06:12 PM
Reviewer: Anonymous from Texas
The recipe calls for 4 cups of water but in the directions it only says to use three cups water. Where does the remaining 1 cup go?
