Bourbon Raisin & Basmati Rice Pudding
1 bag Success Basmati Rice
2 cups half-and-half
½ cup granulated sugar
1 ½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 medium orange, zest removed and sliced in half
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 pinch kosher salt
¾ cup golden raisins
3 tablespoons bourbon
2 large eggs, beaten

In a heavy bottomed saucepan, combine half-and-half, sugar, vanilla, orange zest, cinnamon and salt and place over medium heat. Stir frequently and watch closely so half-and-half mixture does not come to a boil. Cook rice according to package directions. Meanwhile, place raisins and bourbon in a microwave safe bowl and cover with plastic wrap, piercing a few holes in plastic wrap with a knife. Microwave on high for about 30 seconds and set aside to allow raisins to plump for 3-5 minutes. Whisk the eggs in a medium-sized heatproof mixing bowl. Turn the half-and-half mixture down to low heat and pour ¼ cup of the heated half-and-half into the beaten eggs while continuously whisking. Repeat with another ¼ cup, continuously whisking, followed by another ¼ cup. Add the warmed eggs into the saucepan while whisking, turning the heat back to medium. Add the cooked rice to the saucepan and continue stirring occasionally until mixture is slightly thickened and rice is very soft (about 10 minutes). Fold in the plumped raisins, bourbon and the juice from half of the orange. Remove from the heat and serve rice pudding warm or chilled, garnished with orange segments and a pinch of cinnamon, if desired.
