Rice pudding is a spectacular dessert, a classic of Spanish gastronomy and of practically all the grandmothers of Spain.
Cut the peel of a lemon (without the white part).
Wash the rice in cold water.
Add the fresh milk along with the cinnamon sticks and the peel of the lemon in a saucepan, then bring to a boil using medium-high heat. Be careful not to let the mixture stick to the bottom of the pot!
Add the sugar and mix it very well.
Once it starts boiling, lower the heat and add the washed rice.
Let it cook at medium-low heat for about 40-50 minutes, this will depend on the type of stove that you are using. Stir slowly a couple of times until the end of cooking approaches to make sure it doesn't stick to the bottom.
Once the rice is cooked, remove the cinnamon, the lemon skins, add the butter, and mix it. This step will give a very creamy touch to the rice pudding.
Let it cool down and serve it in cups with ground cinnamon.
