Description

This is a nutty rice with a kick and a sweetness that's an alternative to cinnamon apples for accompanying pork entrees.

Ingredients
  • 1 ¼ cups water
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 1 cup golden raisins
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 ¼ cups jasmine rice
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 Granny Smith apple - peeled, cored, and diced
  • 1 small sweet onion, diced
  • 1 stalk celery, diced
  • ¼ teaspoon ground white pepper
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 1 dash ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup blanched slivered almonds
Directions
  1. 1. Combine water, apple cider, and golden raisins in a pot. Bring to a boil; add rice. Cook, stirring often, until most of the water is absorbed, about 17 minutes. Mix in white sugar, brown sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon; continue cooking until rice is tender, about 3 minutes more. Remove from heat.
  2. 2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir apple, onion, and celery in the hot oil until softened, about 5 minutes. Season with white pepper, salt, and a dash of cinnamon. Stir in almonds; cook until starting to brown, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. 3. Fold apple and almond mixture into rice. Let stand until flavors combine, about 5 minutes.
