Warm Rice Pudding with Orange Star Anise Sauce and Walnuts

Warm Rice Pudding with Walnuts and Orange Sauce

Rice pudding never goes astray in cooler weather, and indeed I judge the start of the cold months by my impulsion to make one. Late in the Winter too, when the oranges are ripe and juicy, it is delicious with an orange sauce drizzled over the top. Today we make a buttery Orange Sauce with Walnuts. It is a pudding that is at its best when eaten warm to hot.
