I used white rice and re the cooking time - I feel there must be a typo - may be the poster of the recipe meant 15 minutes instead of 5. No rice, let alone brown can be cooked in 5. I took this into consideration and cooked mine for 15 minutes after seeing white hard crunchy bits after 5. With the longer cooking and my homemade apricots there was a great result - a bit like risotto meets custard.
I am leaving comments only in case someone else tries this. My brown rice (pulverized quick cook) never cooked in the sauce, leaving little hard bits of undissolved rice. It tasted like a good apricot sauce and I ate it warm regardless the first night, but the next day you really notice the uncooked rice. Roxygirl
