Nice with Cornish hens and other poultry from "Soup to Nuts." The hen recipe in that cookbook is for 8 roasted buttered hens (375 degrees for 45 minutes stuffed with this rice if you like) and meanwhile bring 2 cups apple juice to a boil in a saucepan for 20 minutes. Reduce it to a cup and add 1-3 tsp. honey and 1-3 tsp. Dijon mustard to the juice and spoon over the 8 hens. I like the way the cumin and curry sound with the raisins and nuts. Haven't tried it yet. I don't like stuffing or rice cooked in the bird so for me this will be served on the side!
