Using a pan (not stick) of medium-to-large and heat the milk over medium heat with the sugar, the peel of a lemon and the sprigs of cinnamon. Leave until the milk starts to boil.

In the meantime we wash the rice. The best thing is to put it in a colander under the cold water faucet. In this way we remove the excess starch that the rice may have (first the water will come out whitish, then, when you quit already clear, it is because the rice is clean).

When the milk starts to boil we add the rice to the pan and stir well with a wooden spoon. Put out the fire between moderate and low. We're going to cook for almost an hour. it is very important that we stirring, especially during the last 20 minutes so that the rice does not stick to the bottom of the pan.

The 50 minutes test the rice to see if it is fact. There shouldn't be much milk in the pan, so the rice will absorb a little more. Remove from fire only when there is very little milk.

Remove the cinnamon sticks and the lemon peel. Add the butter and melt with the rice. Let stand 5 minutes.

Serve in four small bowls and decorate with ground cinnamon to taste.
