Ingredients

  • 5 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup short-grain rice
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon rind
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 8 oz white chocolate chopped
Cranberry Compote:
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberry
  • 1/3 cup cranberry cocktail
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

Method

Cranberry Compote: In saucepan, bring cranberries, cranberry cocktail and lemon rind and juice to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and puffed, about 4 minutes. Let cool; refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 2 days.)

In heavy saucepan, bring milk, rice, sugar, vanilla and salt to boil over medium heat. Cover and simmer over medium-low heat, stirring often, until tender and most of the liquid is absorbed, about 30 minutes.

In bowl, whisk egg yolks with cream; whisking constantly, whisk in 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the rice mixture. Stir back into saucepan along with lemon rind and juice; cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in chocolate until melted.

Spoon 3/4 cup (175 mL) into each dessert dish. Top each with about 1 tbsp (15 mL) compote. Serve warm.
