Cook rice in a large amount of boiling water 5 minutes in a medium size saucepan; drain.
Scald milk in the top of a double boiler over simmering water; stir in salt and drained rice.
Cook, covered, over simmering water, 1 hour, or until rice is very soft.
Stir in 1/4 cup of the sugar, vanilla, egg yolks, and butter or margarine; spoon into a fancy 4 cup ring or tube mold.
Chill at least 2 hours, or until serving time.
Combine water, remaining 1/2 cup sugar, lemon juice, and allspice in a medium-size saucepan; heat to boiling; add apples; cover.
Simmer very slowly, turning apples once, 15 minutes, or until tender but still firm enough to hold their shape; lift out with a slotted spoon and drain on paper toweling.
Chill.
Blend 1/4 cup of the apple syrup into currant jelly in a small saucepan; heat, stirring constantly, until jelly melts.
When ready to serve, loosen rice mold around edge with a knife.
Invert onto a serving plate; shake gently if needed, to loosen; lift off mold carefully.
Leave one half apple whole and cut each of remaining into quarters; place part in center of mold and arrange remaining, spoke fashion, around edge of top; place saved half in center.
Spoon part of the currant sauce over apples, then serve remaining separately.
