Here is another news clipping from the 1920s. This is like kicked up rice pudding. The addition of pineapple would be amazing. I am rather biased, as I adore rice pudding.
1 cup rice
3 to 3 1/2 cups boiling milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup cream, whipped
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup drained, shredded pineapple or other fruit
Add salt to milk. Steam rice in the milk over boiling water thirty to forty-five minutes until tender. Add vanilla. Cool and fold in one-half of the whipped cream. Add fruit and vanilla.* Pour into a pudding dish. Chill and garnish with whipped cream.
*The recipe states to add the vanilla twice, in two separate places. I think it would be fine added in either place.
**When we make rice pudding, adding a little bit of grated orange peel makes it outstanding. I think this would be great with 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of grated peel added.
