Fruited Rice Pudding

I love a good rice pudding. Rice and raisins swimming around in a rich and creamy sauce. Hmmm. While I usually make mine in the oven, this recipe is well worth the change, especially with the added fruit.

  • 2 Quarts milk

  • 1 Cup rice

  • 1 Cup sugar

  • 3 Tbsp. margarine

  • 1/4 Tsp. salt

  • 1 Tsp. vanilla extract

  • 1/2 Cup minced dried fruit (apricots or peaches or any combination)

  • 1/4 Tsp. ground cinnamon

Put all ingredients into crock pot. Stir to blend well. Cover and cook on high 1 & 1/2 hours, stir once after about 1 hour. Or, cook on high for the first 30 minutes, turn to low and cook as long as you want.

Check and stir after the first 2 hours of cooking on low. If rice is not absorbing the milk quickly enough, turn the crock pot up to high again. Keep cover on at all times.
