 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Uncooked Rice
  • 2 tb Butter Or Margarine
  • 2 c Water


2 tb Butter Or Margarine
1/4 c Dried Apricots
1/4 c Dried Prunes
1/4 c Dried Currants
1/4 c Blanched Almonds; finely
2 tb Honey
1 tb Hot Water

Saute rice, stirring constantly, in nonstick pan with butter or margarine
until translucent, about 2 minutes. Combine rice with water in steaming
pan; cover and steam until rice is done, 18 to 20 minutes. Uncover and
allow to dry out, 3 to 5 minutes.

Prepare sauce while rice is steaming. Saute fruits and nuts in butter or
margarine in nonstick pan until lightly browned, stirring frequently.
Combine honey and water; add to pan. Simmer over low heat 10 minutes or
until liquid is thickened, stirring occasionally.

Fluff hot pilaf with fork before serving topped with fruit sauce.


Make a date sauce by sauteing 1/2 cup slivered blanched almonds in butter
or margarine. Add 1/2 cup each chopped dates and golden raisins. Cook,
stirring frequently, 5 minutes. Stir in 1 tablespoon orange flower water or
1 teaspoon grated orange peel.

NOTES : Pilaf made with dried fruits is particularly good with roasted or
barbecued pork or chicken.
