This recipe is the product of the "I need to go to the grocery store, but don't have time" syndrome. It is a sweet, flavorful rice that is so easy to make. A quick side dish that goes well with meat, poultry, or fish. Even my "Picky Panel of Judges" (A.K.A. "Guinea Pigs") liked it!!

Wow, this was pretty good...I did add a little extra sugar...for that sweet tooth ya know...but it was good...a nice change. Oh, and I added a handful of chopped pecans for some crunch ....;-)

This has really good flavour with a 1/2 tsp brown sugar added. I added the chopped apple at the end after cooking and it just steamed a little for a texture we prefer. I found the rice a lot stickier than we are used to but maybe it was because I used a different white Basmati rice than I usually do. I just made this to my own directions with the same ingredients called for. I served it with butternut squash and plain yogurt for a delicious meal. I will definitely make this again, hopefully with the rice not turning out so sticky. Made for Comfort Cafe - Snow Queens, Round 01/10.
