    Brown Basmati rice is 100% foolproof for me so that was my rice of choice. I've made this twice now and have slightly reduced the cayenne pepper (ground red peopper) as a change to the recipe. DH, however, liked it peoppery. We enjoy this w/ sweet potoates and rotisserie chicken as a meal. I tend to have all these ingredients on hand, only have to buy orange juice. This time, DH's mother is going to get a chicken dinner sent her way with this rice as he's told her so much about it. It is on the way to being a staple recipe in our household. Quite the excellent and easy side dish. I'm thinking about it as a contribution to upcoming Easter dinner. Thanks for sharing!

    This was really good. I used all White Rice and had to do some cooking adjustments. I soaked all the dried fruit in the Orange Juice for about an hour. Got 2 cups of water boiling with all the remaining ingredients and added 1 cup of rice along with the fruit and Orange Juice. Cooked for 20 minutes and it came out perfect. Lovely presentation and nice blend of flavors. Thanks for sharing!

    I agree, this was really good. What I loved most about it, is how easy it is - most of it thrown together in the beginning, so don't be scared off by the list of ingredients, it only takes a few minutes to get this on the stove. I also really loved the thyme, it complimented the fruity flavours beautifully. Thanks Mike, I like this fancy rice! Made for Veg Swap 16 - Nov09

    This has both savory and fruity flavors that go together really well. I made a few changes due to what I had on hand (used converted white rice, with chicken stock instead of bouillon) and adjusted the amounts accordingly. I love this one and look forward to making it again! Thanks, Sydney Mike.
