      Very good, beautiful color. Actually quite mild in flavor. Next time I will add more cumin. I made the rice the conventional stove-top way with a 2:1 water-to-rice ratio. I haven't made rice in the microwave before, and didn't want to take chances. I made it without the pine nuts, almonds, and the raisins because I didn't have any available. I can see how it would benefit by the sweetness of the raisins and the texture of the nuts. When I make it again, I may also experiment with other mixtures of dried fruits, including dates and apricots.
