Pick, wash, and boil half a pint of rice. Then drain off the water, and let the rice dry, and get cold. Afterwards mix with it two ounces of butter, and four ounces of sugar, and stir it into a quart of rich milk. Beat four or five eggs very light, and add them gradually to the mixture. Stir in at the last a table-spoonful of grated nutmeg and cinnamon. Bake it an hour in a deep dish. Eat it cold.
