  • Cost: $$$$

  • Origin:

This feast day is celebrated in remembrance of the infants of Bethlehem who were slain by the order of King Herod, who believed the newborn Christ to be a rival king. Thus on December 28 we honor the Holy Innocents as the first martyrs.

Almonds are a symbol of infancy and innocence, and we should use them in at least one dish that is to be served on this day.

DIRECTIONS

Cook raw rice in large amount boiling salted water 5 minutes in medium-sized saucepan; drain. Place in a 6-cup baking dish. Stir in scalded milk, sugar, whole blanched almonds, salt, and stick of cinnamon. Bake uncovered at 325° for 1-1/2 hours, stirring every 20 minutes. Serve warm with cream. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
