Apple Rice Pilaf With Cranberries & Almonds
(*) SONIA'S notes - I used butter and one fresh Granny Smith apple instead of the
celery and added 1/4 cup nuts (sliced almonds) to this dish.
The rice I use is a combination of rice and herbs I buy called Jasmine Medley.
Thai Jasmine rice and wild rice with a blend of garden herbs and (dried)
vegetables, but a combination of jazmine and brown rice would work well also.
Instead of grating the orange peel, I used my zester and zested it in very thin
I used cranraisins. I did not sprinkle with parsley on top. I added all of the
parsley to the recipe itself.
