Wet a pudding-cloth; place it in a basin or colander, having previously well washed and picked a pound of rice if your family be large: half the quantity will be sufficient if small; place some of the wetted rice so as to line the cloth in the mould all round, saving a handful to strew on the top; fill the hollow up with cored apples, and a bit of lemon peel shred fine, or six cloves; throw on the remainder of the rice; tie the bag, not too tight, as the rice swells much; and boil a full hour, or longer if the pudding be large.

Eaten with sugar, this is an excellent, and very wholesome, dish: Acid apples are best, and are so softened by the rice as to need very little sugar to sweeten them. Origin: The Canadian Settler's Guide, written in 1855. Shared by: Sharon Stevens. Submitted By SHARON STEVENS On 01-11-95
