Arroz con Leche (adapted from La Cocina de Leslie, original recipe here)
1 cup rice (I used Arborio)
1 cinnamon stick or 1 heaping tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
3 cups water
4 cups milk (I used 2 percent)
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup raisins
Ground cinnamon, to serve
1. In a large saucepan, bring the rice, cinnamon stick or ground cinnamon, salt, and water to a boil over medium high heat. Cover and reduce to a simmer. Let simmer until the rice is cooked, about 15 minutes.
2. Add the milk and raisins, and fish out the cinnamon stick and discard. Cover and cook until the milk starts to bubble, stirring occasionally. The stir in the sugar and simmer, uncovered, for another 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat, cover, and let sit for at least 15 minutes. Serve warm, or chill for at least 2 hours to serve cold. Sprinkle with ground cinnamon before serving.
