Rice Pudding or Rice Soup?

Is it ever going to thicken?
This week I had the chance to make Arborio Rice Pudding with my Tuesdays with Dorie group. This recipe didn't look all that great to me. I don't really like the texture of rice pudding to start with but this is about trying new things so I went ahead with it. It always sounds better then it tastes. Maybe that is because I enjoy pudding and custards so much? I decided to make the vanilla version and added cinnamon, nutmeg and raisins. After parboiling the rice I added the other ingrediants and stirred and stirred some more. 45 minutes later it was still runny. I gave up and stuck it in the fridge to cool. The next morning I checked on the rice pudding and it was still very wet. It never absorbed all of the milk/sugar mixture. My daughter enjoyed hers but I don't think I will make this again. I am sure that others had better experiences then I did.
Thanks Isabelle of Les gourmandises d'lsa for the interesting Arborio rice pudding.

Ha, ha! This was hilarious--as I knew it would be from the first moment I read your title. :) Plus, I love your final line--and your creative use of the word "interesting." I have to give you huge props for trying something new and having such a good attitude about it. :)

Love you, Susy!

Hmm... maybe that's it - it's just meant for kids, not adults. I can't quite get over the baby food texture and consistency.

At least it tasted good! My rice pudding was a soup too.

No, my experience was the same as yours. But take comfort in the fact that it wasn't our fault - I'm sure you know by now that the stated cooking time was off by, oh, 25 minutes?
