  • Cover and cook until rice is tender, stirring occasionally
  • In mixing bowl whisk egg yolks, sugar and remaining cup of half-and-half. slowly add rice mixture a litle at a time whisking constantly so eggs won't scramble.
  • Put mixture back inpot and heat slowly until pudding begins to thicken.
  • Fold in rum-raisins.
  • Be careful at this point and do not boil or stir any more than needed to prevent custard from breaking and becoming dense.
