The Source Recipe
The original text of the recipe is as follows:

If you want to make good rice. Take rice and wash it clean and set it under water and let the rubbish run off just as one does with peas. Then one shall boil it in a clean pot with water and let it boil well until it has fallen apart. Then one shall take it out and pour it into a colander so that the water runs through and it may drain. Then one shall take a tin/pewter bowl or a large tin/pewter dish and lay therein a plate which has holes in it or a dish with the bottom upwards. Then one shall lay the rice on it so that it may cool and drain and stiffen well. When it is well drained and dry so one shall take almond milk and boil it in a clean pot. Then take the rice and put it therein; let them thus boil well together until it is thick enough. Then you shall put mealsugar in it and stir it well with it before one takes it from the fire. When one serves it so one shall strew loaf sugar over it. One serves this in fasting-times after baked goods.
