How to prepare:

Preheat the oven to 150c.


Lightly grease a 1.2-litre baking dish or casserole with the butter, scatter the rice into the dish and place to one side.


Place the milk and cream in a pan, add the sugar, cinnamon, ginger, saffron, vanilla pod and bring to the boil. Simmer on lowest heat for 5 minutes to infuse the flavours.


Strain the milk through a fine strainer over the rice and stir well.


Cover the dish with a lid or foil and bake for 1 ½ hours or until the rice is just tender.


Meanwhile place the quince jam and rosewater in a small pan and heat gently together.


When rice pudding is cooked, transfer to serving bowls and top each with a good dollop of the jam and a scattering of pistachios.


Garnish with the rose petals if using and serve.
