Rice Crem from Norway

This is Norway's delicious version of rice pudding.  I got the recipe from my sister Joan's recipe book(All four sisters in our family have published cook books.  I guess you could say we're foodies!)  She made it for our family Heritage dinner recently, where we made foods from the lands of our ancestors.  It was absolutely delicious: creamy and rich.  She served it with strawberry sauce(thinned strawberry jam) on top.  If you like rice pudding, you'll LOVE this one!

Rice Crem
In a large pot, mix together:
1 cup rice, rinsed
1 quart whole milk
1 cup sugar
Simmer on low for 4-5 hours.
When it's thick, add:
1Tablespoon vanilla
Cool.  When completely cool, add
1 cup whipping cream that has been whipped and sweetened.

Serve with raspberry or strawberry sauce.

Traditionally in Norway, a whole almond is hidden in the pudding.  The person who gets the almond will have good luck for the next year.
