Since the temperature has dropped a bit, this recipe for Rice Pudding with Jardin du Soleil Culinary Lavender should hit the spot!
½ cup rice
2 ½ cup whole milk
1 cup boiling water
2 tablespoons Jardin du Soleil Culinary Lavender
2/3 cup sugar
2 ½ tablespoons cornstarch
Put milk, sugar and Jardin du Soleil Culinary Lavender in a small pot, bring to boiling point, and remove from heat immediately. Let the mixture steep for at least 30 minutes, longer depending on how strong you wish lavender flavor to be. In a separate pot, add rice to boiling water; cook on medium heat with the lid half closed for 15 minutes, or until water is absorbed by the rice.
In a small bowl, mix cornstarch together with a couple teaspoons of water and a bit of the hot milk mixture, to slightly increase the cornstarch temperature. Then add the this to the steeping milk. Transfer the infused milk through a strainer into the rice and cook for 30 minutes or so, until you reach the desired consistency. Transfer the pudding into your serving dish and refrigerate, covered with plastic wrap, until serving.
