    This is a fantastic flavorful side that I found in one of my favorite cookbooks by Cheryl Alters Jamison and Bill Jamison, "American Home Cooking". They're all great!

      Great recipe! I used pistachios from Orandi Ranch, visit, because they handcraft their pistachios with Himalayan Pink Salt. I didn't have to use any extra salt in this recipe because of the wonderful balance the pistachios brought to this dish.

      This was really delicious. I used a bit of ground cinnamon instead of mace and my own homemade chicken stock. I served this with acorn squash and raisin sauce. I will definitely make this again.

      This is definitely a keeper! Had to use salted pistachios, though. So didn't add any extra salt to the dish. I sauted the pistachios and pine nuts until the butter browned a little. This added a little more pizzaz to the rice. The slight hint of mace added more dimension, also. Thnx for sharing your recipe, SRC. Made for My-3-Chefs 2009.
