A treat for young and old, this might just become part of your holiday traditions.
Cook the Dainty Limited Edition Pudding Rice according to package directions with the addition of the salt and lemon zest.
When done, stir the milk, nutmeg, sugar, and vanilla into the cooked rice.
Bring to a simmer over medium heat while stirring periodically so the milk doesn’t burn. Reduce to medium-low heat and cook until the milk is thick.
Remove from the heat, stir in Eggnog and let sit for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Portion into bowls and chill. Garnish with dried cranberries, a dollop of whipped cream and serve cold or room temperature, with Eggnog to sip on the side!
To prepare the Dainty eggnog, combine milk, cloves, cinnamon in a saucepan and heat over a medium heat. Bring to a simmer.
In a large bowl, combine the yolks and sugar - whisk until fluffy. Slowly whisk in the hot milk.
Pour back into the saucepan and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly for 3 minutes or until thick (do NOT boil).
Strain and cool for 1 hour. Stir in dark rum, cream, vanilla, and nutmeg. Chill before serving.
