Though our day did not turn out as we had hoped we did get one random redaction done.
We were looking at cookbooks discussing the up coming events we are cooking for, bouncing between the 2 of them as we just thought out loud when we stumbled on a recipe that sounded intriguing. Shelly says to me, have ya got rice? I said yes, and some oranges right here. Sugar, cinnamon and ginger, check. Lets get started! :) and random redaction began, during the initial boiling of the rice we found 2 more recipes to redact and got the ingredients together. Then... ice cream happened and we came home to find the beans for the second redaction burning on the stove and the house so filled with smoke making the third redaction was impossible. So with only 1 redaction done we called it a day and ordered pizza for everyone!
To Make a Tart of Rice, The Good Housewife's Jewel page 73
Boil your rice and put in the yolks of two or three eggs into the rice. When it is boiled, put it into a dish and season it with sugar, cinnamon and ginger, and butter, and the juice of two or three oranges, and set it on the fire again.
What we did:
1.5 c water 1/2 c white rice
2/3 c Orange juice (juice of 2 oranges)
1Tbsp + 1 tsp sugar
1tsp ginger 1 tsp cinnamon
1 egg yolk 1Tbsp butter
We boiled the rice until all the water was absorbed
added the butter, egg yolk, and juice
added 1/2 tsp of each spice
tasted and added another tsp of each spice
turned heat to low, covered and let cook for about 1/2 hr more
Results were yummy. My husband said it reminded him of the apple and brown sugar oatmeal but he liked it! My 6 year old LOVED it. Though it was great! Shelly and I both liked it as well.
Thoughts: I think it should be a bit mushier is texture and will increase the water for the initial cooking, It sets well, like a custard. I would also like to use less cinnamon. Possibly more butter as well, but it was tasty even after it got cold.
I am hoping this weekend to get to the other 2 redactions, this time without setting my kitchen on fire.
