This was great! I changed it a bit by adding 1/3 a cup of brown rice medely, I used less butter, half of the apple, and 1/8 cup regular raisins instead of golden (didn't have any). This is super yummy and I love the shallots and spices with all the dried fruit. What a yummy winter treat! My only complaint is that there was too much liquid and I had to drain the rice a bit. Oh well!

Terrific rice. Did a scaled down version - having stocked up on wild rice the perfect time to make up a variety of pilafs and rice dishes. This one was absolutely wonderful and one I will be making for special occasions. Made as posted with great results. Great to be finding so many variations with such wonderful taste. Definitely a repeatable.

I can't believe the explosion of flavours in this rice. We just loved it! Even my 8 year old liked it. The cook-time was perfect for us, it turned out just right. Rich in flavour and texture, it was a real treat! Made for ZWT 4 :)
