Swedish Rice Custard
1 qt. milk
1/2 cup rice
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Wash rice, cook rice, milk, salt, and sugar in double boiler until thick. Beat eggs and add vanilla. Butter a 2 quart casserole or a pyrex baking pan and pour your combined rice and egg mixture. Return to slow oven until custard congeals. Use silver knife to test doneness as for custard. A casserole set in a pan of hot water keeps it from getting crusty. Bake in 325 degree oven for 30 to 45 minutes.
