Recipe by Cooking Beast

This recipe has Greek origins. It is always a little different depending upon the type of honey, rice, and oranges used, but it's always good. I like dark honeys such as buckwheat, but others may prefer something lighter such as clover, acacia, or orange blossom. The recipe comes from Cooking in a Casserole (1967) by Robert Ackart, though I have made some changes to it. The recipe gives instructions to bake it in the oven, but one can also cook it in a pot on the stove top on low heat and be done in 30 minutes--lots of stirring. Orange juice and liqueur are added last to keep the flavors strong.
