Take it off the stove and do not drain; then add a quart of milk, 3/4 cup of sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a little nutmeg. Put it in the oven and bake very slowly for about 1 hour. Stir it frequently while it is baking.
Cold rice can be mixed with a small quantity of meat, and used for stuffing eggplant; or it can be reheated or made into pudding.
A few spoons of left-over rice mixed with a little chopped meat, or fish, and a few spoons of gravy or white sauce to moisten it, can be put in a baking-dish, covered with bread crumbs, and baked in the oven.
