the most dangerous recipe in the world

One of the things my boys love love love for afternoon tea is Creamed Rice.

It goes something like this....

Heat about 1.5 litres of milk in a heavy based saucepan.

Once it's warm, sprinkle in about a cup, maybe a cup & a half of alborio rice.

Turn the heat down as low as possible and leave the lid on, just slightly ajar.

Keep an eye on it over the next hour or so, stirring occasionally, while the rice swells and absorbs the milk

Once it is all looking pretty thick, but still quite soupy, and the rice is cooked through (but not fall aparty) take it off the heat and let it sit for about ten minutes.

Then....and here is the dangerous bit....open a tin a sweetened condensed milk and pour it in and give it a stir. (Don't worry if it is looking runny, the mixture will usually thicken up a bit once it cools down).

The reason WHY this is the dangerous bit, is that, even though I am not a massive sweet tooth, I have a mental battle with myself each and every time, and it is only through great mental strength that I manage to stop myself from putting my finger anywhere near the edge of the tin to get the last little bits out....it give me that funny-fear-based-tummy-flip even thinking about it....everyone knows you shouldn't put your finger near the edge of a tin....but, mannn, it is sooooo tempting!!
