My go-to rice pudding recipe - I've never made the sauce. I add a few cardamom pods to the milk for a subtle flavour.
Rice Pudding with Pomegranate Syrup

I didn't make the pomegranate syrup because I was only using what I had on hand. I used long grain rice instead of short, and it turned out just fine. This is a good, solid rice pudding recipe but nothing special. Next time I will try it with the sauce. It took MUCH longer for the pudding to thicken on the stovetop than they stated in the recipe, plan on extra time. I made it ahead of time and then warmed it up before serving. That worked just fine, nobody could tell the difference.

A wonderfully creamy rice pudding with great vanilla flavor. Loved the pomegranate sauce - tasted midway between a fruity maple syrup and cran juice cocktail! Didn't love the pomegranate seeds sprinkled on top - their crunch detracted from the creaminess of the rice pudding itself.
