    Yes, you can use either short or long grain.

    I prefer long grain in mine.

    Short grain rice is best, but you can use long grain.

    How to make rice pudding

    When you've done all of that, you might ask yourself, "now why didn't I just buy a can of Ambrosia?" Answer - because it does not have a skin on top and that's the secret of real home-made rice pudding. The skin is formed of the cream in the milk - yum!

    A French friend of mine confessed that lots of people in France eat rice pudding. Blimey, is there no end to this sin?

    YES and here's the recipe I use GOOD LUCK!!!!

    2 quarts whole milk

    1 cup long-grain white rice (do not rinse)

    1 cup sugar

    2 tablespoons unsalted butter

    1 teaspoon vanilla

    1/4 teaspoon salt

    2 large eggs

    1 cup heavy cream

    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

    Bring milk, rice, sugar, butter, vanilla, and salt to a boil in a 4-quart heavy saucepan over moderately high heat, then reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, stirring frequently, until rice is very tender, about 1 hour.

    Just before rice mixture finishes cooking, whisk eggs lightly in a bowl. Remove pan from heat and slowly add 1 cup of rice mixture to eggs, whisking constantly. Stir egg mixture into remaining rice mixture in pan, then stir in cream.

    Pour pudding into a 13- by 9-inch glass or ceramic baking dish (3-quart capacity) and sprinkle with cinnamon. Chill pudding, covered, at least 3 hours.

    Certainly. Short will do better than long.
