       Yield: 4 servings
  
            Karen Mintzias
       1 qt Skim milk
       2 c  Cooked long-grain white rice
     1/3 c  Maple syrup; PLUS:
       2 tb Maple syrup
       1 ts Grated orange rind
     1/3 c  Broken walnuts
  
   Combine the milk and rice in a large saucepan.  Cook, stirring, over
   medium-low heat until the mixture boils and thickens, about 25
   minutes. Stir in 1/3 cup maple syrup and cook 10 minutes more.
   
   Add the orange rind and vanilla.  Pour into 4 (8-ounce) dessert bowls
   or custard cups; then allow to cool at room temperature.
   
   Meanwhile, heat the walnuts in a small heavy frying pan over low heat,
   stirring, until fragrant, about 3 minutes.  Drizzle with remaining 2
   tablespoons maple syrup.  Cook over medium heat, stirring, until the
   syrup boils and coats the walnuts, about 2 minutes.  Sprinkle on the
   puddings.
