I give up. What's that supposed to be?

Beth, trying to figure out if her family, who will only eat potato
kugel, will eat a rice kugel if I tell them it's really rice pudding....

Must be mixed spice. I am so glad this recipe was posted. I bought a delicious
rice kugel at the Sisterhood bake sale last year, and have been wanting to make
one ever since. The one I bought had cherries in it, which I am sure I could
use instead of the raisins.

Sorry, all. I just noticed it, too. I meant to say mixed spice which is
allspice. I looked at this for awhile, myself and asked at Williams
Sonoma what this was. I was told that it is a British way of saying
allspice. I then tried the recipe and it really tasted good.

That's interesting because allspice is actually one spice. The reason
it implies more than one is that it tastes like a combination of other
spices.

As for Beth's and Sharon's comments about using cherries, yes,
absolutely, but Sharon, do use dried, if possible. Keep in mind that
you're replacing raisins, which is a dried fruit. Anything with more
liquid will change the texture of this dish.

I've been wondering what to make for Shabbat dessert tonight. Looks
like I found it. I have several kinds of dried fruit (cherries,
blueberries, cranberries, strawberries), so this will be wonderful...I'm
sure.

Thanks for posting this recipe.

When you mentioned "British way", I remembered seeing a description of
"mixed spice" in Elizabeth David's Spices, Salt and Aromatics in the
English Kitchen. In it, she says: "Pudding spice or Mixed Spice:
Fairly obviously, a compound of the sweet spices of English
cookery-cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, sometimes coriander, occasionally
Jamaica pepper or allspice, depending upon each spice/purveyor's recipe,
and which spices are plentiful and cheap when the time comes to make up
the spice mixture in bulk."

Hi, W.

I was looking through the recipe and noticed the above. I can't be sure
if the other equivalents you listed are corrected, but I do know that 2
oz. butter is 4 Tablespoons, not 8...or do you really mean 8
tablespoons (as 4 ounces)?

You might want to check that out so we can make that correction in the
archives. Thanks.

BTW, what should the texture be like for this dish?
