Take twotablespoonfuls of boiled rice. If it is very dry, wash it with alittlewarm water. Put it in a pan, add atablespoonful of butter, three or foureggs beaten light, aquart of sweet milk, sugar enough to make it quite sweet, and onecup of picked and seeded raisins. Flavor with nutmeg and essence of lemon or vanilla. Bake lightly. Do not allow it to remain in the oven long, as the milk will become watery and thus destroy the jelly-like consistency of the custard. It is a nice and cheap dessert for children. The raisins may be omitted if they are objectionable.
