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.
