Rice pudding for baby

It's as if Leon knows that his mommas passion is cooking.  He is the best 'lil dude to cook for.  He pretty much loves everything I offer him- with the one exception which is pureed green peas.  Without speaking he let me know he hated the taste of it.
Now that we're graduating from smooth purees and unto more chunky food I can become more creative.
I made him rice pudding for dinner tonight and he savored every spoonful.
Here's the recipe:

Rice pudding for baby

  • 1/2 cup calrose rice (short grain)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup apples thinly sliced or cut in slivers
  • 1/4 cup golden raisins
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp bottled ginger
Combine all of the above ingredients in a medium saucepan over low heat.  Cook for 30 minutes or until rice is super soft, fragrant and a bit soupy.  Keep a close watch to make sure the consistency is not too thick.  Add water when necessary.
Serve warm or room temperature.

I made a big batch and froze the rest in ice cube trays.
