    Default Ping: Damsel - Glorified Rice recipes - long

    All those heathens and reprobates who've never heard of Glorified Rice
    and kind of hint that it's another Weird Minnesotans With Their Hotdish
    Recipes thing set me to lookin' in me books.

    I posted the GR recipe from the big Betty Crocker book from somewhere in
    the 1950s (my guess). Then I checked another big BC book from 1979 and
    it's still in there (red cover with photos of a skillet pot roast, roast
    chicken, bread, salad, cherry pie, soup and sandwich, fruit cup, and
    corn salad):

    Glorified Rice
    1 cup cold cooked white or brown rice
    1/3 cup sugar
    13-1/4 ounce can crushed pineapple, drained
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    1/3 cup miniature marshmallows (mini marsh must not have existed in the
    1950s)
    2 tablespoons drained chopped maraschino cherries
    1 cup chilled whipping cream

    Mix rice, sugar, pineapple and vanilla. Add marshmallows and cherries.
    beat whipping cream in chilled bowl until stiff; fold into rice mixture.
    Makes 6-8 servings.

    Well, Betty wrote books for national distribution and they were pretty
    standard and basic books, before everyone and his sister started
    publishing cookery books, so I don't think GR is one of those weird
    Minnesota/Midwest things.

    Wait!! Wait! There's more!


    I checked my big Pillsbury book (1963 copyright) and found this recipe:

    Glorified Rice

    1 cup heavy cream
    2 tablespoons sugar
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 cups cooked rice
    2/3 cup drained crushed pineapple
    1 banana, sliced and quartered
    maraschino cherries

    Beat cream in small bowl until stiff; blend in sugar and vanilla
    extract. Combine rice, pineapple and banana. Fold in whipped cream.
    Spoon into serving dishes; garnish with cherries. Chill.

    Tip: One cup miniature marshmallows may be substituted for bananas.
    (I'm thinking the bananas would darken. Not pretty.)
    Tip: For fluffy grains of rice, drain rice in colander or sieve and
    rinse with hot water.



    Then we have, from the Church Ladies at St. Mary's Russian Orthodox
    Church, Minneapolis, 1970:

    Glorified Minute Rice
    (A dream dessert that's double-quick)

    2/3 cup Minute Rice
    2/3 cup water
    1/2 cup pineapple juice
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 cup diced marshmallows
    6 diced maraschino cherries
    3/4 cup drained crushed pineapple
    1/3 cup chopped nuts
    2 cups sweetened whipped cream

    Combine Minute Rice, water, pineapple juice, and salt in saucepan. Mix
    just to moisten all rice. Bring quickly to a boil over high heat.
    Cover and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat, let stand 5 minutes. Add
    marshmallows, cherries, pineapple and nuts. Cool to room temperature.
    Fold in whipped cream and chill 1 hour. Makes 8-10 servings.

    You can thank Mrs. Sue Memorich for that one.



    But wait!! There's more!! For the same low, low price, you can also
    have this!! Free! Free!! Free!!!

    Erma Rombauer and Marion Rombauer Becker wrote a cookbook, too.
    Something they called "The Joy of Cooking." My 1964 edition has this
    recipe for

    Rice and Fruit Cream (sure looks like GR to me).

    1 cup cooked rice
    1 cup drained apricots, pineapple, etc.
    1/2 cup whipping cream
    12 diced marshmallows
    Crushed nut brittle

    Combine the rice and fruit. Whip the cream until stiff and fold in the
    rice mixture. Add the marshmallows. Place in individual dishes. Chill
    thoroughly. You may top it with crushed nut brittle. Serves 5.

    What I found interesting about the hunt was that the indices in the big
    books sometimes didn't have anything listed as Glorified Rice. But they
    all have rice puddings and when I'd look there, I'd find a separate
    recipe for Glorified Rice. How about that!

    Maybe I'll make one of these and take it to a potluck next week.

    Oh my. As a kid, growing up in MN, I saw this stuff at just about every
    reunion or funeral. I had an aunt who, I think, may have lived on the stuff.
    Never did like it much myself...the only time I ever liked sweet rice was
    when Mom made rice & raisins in the winter sometimes (just rice with
    cinnamon & raisins in milk). Hadn't thought about either dish in ages!
    Thanks for the memories, Barb

    You haven't noticed a pattern of who recognises something
    called Glorified Rice? Or who doesn't? Heh. Those people
    in the frozen middle northern part have heard of it.

    I'm sure it's wonderful, but I'm not much for rice pudding.
    My loss.

    <grin> Yahbut it's not "just a midwest thing." Those books (OK, not
    the church cookbook) were distributed nationwide and had a broad
    audience. . . . Oh, hell, never mind.

    Yeah, me, neither. Something about soupy rice. Maybe that's why I'm
    not wild about risotto.

    But Betty Crocker books are written or compiled by General Mills.

    Never. Not even if you ask nice.

    (laugh) Well, I certainly didn't mean to be insulting. There
    are things I never heard of that everyone else seems to
    know, then it turns out it's a midwest thing. It's just weird
    when someone looks for a recipe for Glorified Rice and
    other people have one. And I've never heard of it!

    I think a big part of the country said Did she say Loose Meat??
    when the Roseanne show started with that.

    I learn a *lot* on this here newsgroup.

    LOL!! I'm *not* insulted. Takes more than poking fun at food
    combinations to seriously annoy me. And I am very good at laughing at
    myself‹I've buried too many family members to take life seriously.

    It is. As is Pillsbury - now owned by General Mills. And both, as well
    as Better Homes and Gardens, have published "basic" cookbooks with an
    eye to national use and distribution. I used to test recipes for
    General Mills -- they had testers in all parts of the country to check
    for things like recipe tolerance, altitude tolerance, availability of
    ingredients.

    You've raised an interesting thought, Susan. It seems like nearly
    everyone is familiar with the red plaid-cover BH&G book. Were the Betty
    Crocker and Pillsbury books not seen or just not of any particular
    interest? Do other parts of the country have companies that publish/ed
    big *basic* cook books? Especially, say, 40-50 years ago when
    communications were quite different from today's?

    I've had and made this with orzo macaroni instead of rice. Orzo is
    small and rice grain shaped if you're not familiar with it. The recipe
    was given by a friend from Binghamton area of NY. Interesting how it
    had changed from one area of the country to another. I had never had
    it in Mass, NJ or DE until she served it.

    I'm not sure about that. I have a collection of cookbooks and not
    many are from before 1940. I do have a couple from General Foods,
    Good Housekeeping and Culinary Arts Institute. The first Betty
    Crocker I have is 1942. I'm not saying that my collection is
    representative of what was out there.

    My mother did not have but one cookbook that I remember and it was put
    out by the local Junior Woman's Club. She used it mostly for cakes.
    The rest of the time we ate whatever she grew up eating. Pete & I
    wanted the recipe for Aunt Jettie's biscuits. We had to stand and
    watch, try to measure what she was putting into the bowl. I still
    have the wooden bowl she used. Unfortunately her magic touch did not
    come with it.

    When I got married in 1962 my recipes were all on cards in a file box.
    Recipes from friends, relatives and magazines. The first cook book
    I bought was the 1961 Betty Crocker. I wonder if the lack of cook
    books was because most women learned to cook by helping their mothers
    and later by subscribing to the women's magazines like Good
    Housekeeping and McCalls.

    Foods were regional because ingredients were regional. The first time
    I decided to make Manicotti I looked all over San Antonio for ricotta
    cheese. Couldn't find it. Someone in one of the groceries suggested
    dry curd cottage cheese. It worked. When I related the story here I
    was asked why I didn't go to an ethnic market. I really don't think
    that ricotta cheese had made it to the Mexican markets in the late
    1960s.

    Anyone else have any thoughts about this.

    Thanks for the recipes, Barb. Things are going very, very badly for
    us right now, and I'm on the edge. Usually, I can blow stuff like
    "Blech!" off, but I'm on my last nerve. Sorry for the KF. I'm
    reversing it after I hit Send.

    The good news is, we have all but two outlets (both in the kitchen)
    restored now. The plumber won't be available until Friday to cap off
    the boiler so we can turn the water heater back on, but it *is*
    progress.

    The guy who the landlord's buying the boiler from had his phone
    "temporarily disconnected" when it was time to go pick it up. If the
    guys can connect tonight or tomorrow, our landlord will be picking the
    new boiler up tomorrow evening, and Friday can also be heat day!

    Thank goodness it's generally been warm. We've had a few quite chilly
    days inside, but overall, it's kinda like camping. I've lived through
    worse. It's the waiting and wondering and hoping and waiting some
    more.

    We're getting rain tonight.

    I haven't had Glorified Rice since the last time my mom made it, and
    she passed in 1984. It's kind of a dim memory. But it says home and
    love and Mom. So to me, it's precious.

    Ouch. Things any better today, I hope?

    Emotionally, yes. Physically, no. Fell twice this morning while
    letting the dogs out (skinned knee and pulled muscles). It's 58F in
    the house, and between being injured and trying to keep warm, I've
    spent a lot of time in bed. Bed is a Good Thing. I really do enjoy
    sleeping. It's one of my favorite pasttimes.

    Welcome to my world. Hubby loves keeping the thermostat down at 55°.
    It's a perverse pleasure. I'm not fond of wearing a coat inside, so I
    turn up the heat to 62° and sometimes I crank it all the way up to 64°
    when I'm home.

    I feel your pain. I like it right around 72, myself. The sun's
    starting to warm us up. We're at 63F now. A regular heat wave! LOL!

    I used to love to sleep. Now that it hurts, not so much. :-(

    ObFood: My signature wheatberry salad from the rfc site is perfect for
    the low-iodine diet, so I'm gonna make a big old batch of it right
    before the diet starts.
