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.
