instructions
Start the pudding
1 Start the pudding

Remove the honey from the refrigerator. Wash and dry the orange. Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate the orange. Halve the orange crosswise. Heat a large, high sided pan (or pot) on medium-high until hot. Add the rice. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly browned and fragrant. Add the coconut milk, sugar, warming spices, 1/2 cup of water, and a pinch of salt; stir to combine. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium. Cook, stirring occasionally, 30 to 35 minutes, or until thickened and the rice is tender. (As the liquid thickens, you’ll need to stir more frequently to avoid sticking and a skin from forming.)

Meanwhile, roughly chop the pistachios. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped pistachios. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly toasted. Add the honey. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until coated. Transfer to a parchment paper-lined (or lightly greased) plate; spread into an even layer to avoid sticking. Immediately season with salt. Set aside to cool.

If your rice is not tender once the mixture has reduced, add 1/4 cup of water. Continue to cook 4 to 6 minutes to achieve your desired consistency. Repeat this process if necessary. Once tender, add the cream, orange zest, and the juice of both orange halves (discarding any seeds). Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined. Turn off the heat. Transfer to a large serving dish (or 6 individual dishes). If serving later, cover with plastic wrap (making sure the plastic touches the pudding to prevent a film from forming) and refrigerate. Serve the finished pudding topped with the sour cherry spread and candied pistachios. Enjoy!
