I tried this recipe for my wife and I. I didn't put coconut in because we don't like it. Everything else was light and refreshing. The peaches and raisins made this nice. I will make this again the same way. I'm glad we tried this.

We did not care for this very much. Flavours came out to simple. Perhaps a hint of sweet chili sauce to balance out the sweet of the peaches? Definitely an infinitely tweak-able recipe.

Rum and arborio rice, together! It worked out really well, and the rum was not overpowering. With the peaches and raisins, it did feel like a summer dish, I made it a couple of times, and enjoyed it with bbq.
