Southern-style Honey Rice

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Kay D.

I believe this recipe originally came from Southern Living Magazine. This smells so wonderful when you stir it. I leave out the peanuts (personal preference), but you may enjoy them. Note: prep time does not include time to cook the rice.

This one wasn't a hit in our house. I think hubby just couldn't get past the idea of sweet rice. Also, I used buckwheat honey which has quite a strong flavor so maybe if I would've used a lighter honey, we would've enjoyed it more. Thanks for something new to try, though.
