Proper Rice Pudding

This is the real, traditional English rice pudding and it is a fantastically comforting pudding for the impending Autumn days. It's also about as easy as recipes come - sling it in the oven and forget about it for a few hours. You will be rewarded with soft, creamy rice under a caramelized skin. If you like a slightly richer pudding, you can either use whole milk or evaporated milk.

Almost every culture has a variation on rice pudding and as something of an addict, I'll be posting a few of them over the next few weeks.

Ingredients:
60g pudding rice
600ml semi-skimmed milk
30g soft brown sugar

Serves 4

Put all the ingredients in a deep oven-proof dish. Give a little stir and then pop in the oven at 150c for about 2 hours. Easy.

Arthritis diet notes:
As this recipe is based on milk, it is a great source of calcium. One serving will give you about 25% of your daily calcium requirements and 25% of your daily vitamin D requirements, both of which are vital to build and maintain strong bones and prevent osteoporosis.

    It works nicely with grated nutmeg on top, too, giving a little spice and that comforting smell... and perhaps some arthur benefits of the nutmeg oil
