Compote Of Rice
Take plain boiled rice, pack lightly in small cups, and put in a warm
place for an hour to set. Turn out molded, and send to the table
garnished with any kind of rich preserves,--preferably such large fruits
as peaches, pears or plums.
Rice nicely cooked is often served in place of a vegetable and eaten
with a fork from the dinner plate like mashed potatoes. It is a good
thing for the little cook to learn all the different ways of cooking it,
as often a small quantity left from one meal would prove most acceptable
for another, if prepared differently.
