Arborio Rice Pudding with Rum Raisins


3 Tbsp dark rum
1 cup raisins
2 cups water
pinch salt
1 Tbsp butter
1 cup Pastene Italian Arborio Rice
4 cups whole milk
½ cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
dash ground cinnamon
whipped cream, for serving


  • In a small bowl, combine the raisins and rum. Set aside to soak.
  • Bring water, salt, and butter to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add the arborio rice, return to a boil, and then reduce the heat to the lowest setting. Stir occasionally and cook until rice has absorbed the water but it still al dente, about 15 minutes.
  • Bring milk, sugar, vanilla, and a few dashes of cinnamon to a simmer in a separate saucepan. Add the cooked rice and cook at a simmer over medium-low heat until rice absorbs most of the milk and mixture starts to get thick and silky, about 15 to 20 minutes. Stir continuously during this process
  • Transfer pudding to a large bowl, add the raisins and remaining rum and cool to room temperature. Place in refrigerator until cool and set. Serve with whipped cream and a dash more cinnamon.
