Old Fashioned Rice Pudding

This is my grandmother's recipe.  Really good :)

2 quarts milk
1/2 cup Carolina rice
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup raisins
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

In a large Pyrex baking dish (2 1/2 to 3 quart size) combine the milk, rice and sugar.  Preheat oven to about 340 degrees (that is not a typo) and bake for about 2 hours in all.  Set the timer for 30 minute intervals and stir the pudding each time it rings.

Soak the raisins in a little water for half an hour to soften them.  About 15 minutes before baking time is up, stir the drained raisins and vanilla into the pudding.

Bake uncovered, do not set the baking dish in a pan of water as for custard.  Chill before serving.
