Waldorf Rice

Author Notes: This is a very simple recipe with a great effect. The rice is very slightly sweetened by the apple juice and the apples. You can also use chicken stock instead of the water or the whole amount of liquid. I prefer to use 2 tbsp. or rum instead of the extract, and add it after it's cooked. I also like to add the apples a few minutes before the rice is cooked. Give it a try before you dismiss this unpretentious, but oh-so delicious dish!MrsK
