Adapted from Apt. 2B Baking Co.
1 vanilla bean
1 cup arborio rice
4 1/2 cups whole milk
Pinch of kosher salt
3/4 cups heavy cream
1 egg yolk
Handful of pistachios, chopped, for garnish
As mentioned in the notes, I would skip this next time, favoring instead just a simple segmented orange, maybe with a splash of whiskey and a drizzle of honey, but this recipe is true to the original, and what I did.
2/3 cups sugar
3 tablespoons whiskey, honey whiskey, or bourbon
Serve chilled over the pudding.
