(Whole milk spread)
½ cup rice
9 cups whole milk
1 cinnamon stick
1/8 teaspoon baking soda, so that milk is not cut
2 cups granulated sugar
- Wash the rice very well, drain and let dry under the sun. Once
it is dry, grind finely using a mill or a blender. Sift using a sieve. Repeat the process
until grinding well all the rice.
- In a large pot pour the nine cups of milk, ground rice, baking
soda, cinnamon stick, and sugar. Mix very well until the sugar dissolves.
- Place the pot over medium heat, stirring constantly with a
wooden spoon. It is very important to stir frequently. Let it boil over medium heat until
the mixture thickens. The spread will be ready when the bottom of the pot can be seen
while stirring with the spoon.
This milk spread or manjar blanco is ideal to eat
alone for dessert, with bread, or to fill up cakes.
