This is stellar! I made it tonight for a potluck at work tomorrow, and I just know it'll be a hit. I doubled the recipe except for the onions and butter, and I used half cranberries and half golden raisins. When I mixed it all together at the end, my bouillon cubes that I used in place of broth had made it a little too salty, so I cooked up a little bit of basmati rice and mixed that in to balance it out. This is the perfect blend of sweet and savory. Thanks for posting, chia--I'll be making this one often!
