Rice, 1/4 pound, Butter, 1 teaspoon, Vanilla bean, 1 pod, Preserved peaches or apricots, Whipped cream, Salt and milk.

Cook the rice, butter, and vanilla bean together, adding a pinch of salt, and set it to cool. When cold, put a layer of the rice on a dish, then a layer of the preserved peaches, or apricots, then a layer of the whipped cream, and so on; the top layer being a thick layer of the cream.

Put it on the ice, and serve cold. With a quarter of a pound of rice, this should be enough for 8 or 10 persons.
