Beans, Rice & Grain


1 cup California Dates, chopped

2 cups Wild Rice

1 Apple, peeled, cored and chopped

1 Onion, chopped

2 stalks Celery, chopped

3 Tbsp Butter

1 tsp Dried Rosemary

1/2 tsp Dried Thyme

2/3 cup Ham, Diced

1/2 cup Dried Apricots, sliced

3/4 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp Pepper


Rinse rice.  Bring to a boil about four cups of water.  Add rice and cook at a rolling boil for 40 minutes with lid off, or until rice is tender.  Drain.  Meanwhile, saute onions and celery in butter in a medium skillet over medium-high heat for 4-5 minutes, or until soft.  Stir in rosemary and thyme and remove from heat.  In a large bowl combine rice with onion-cerely mixture and remaining ingredients.  Season with salt and pepper.  Spoon into a buttered 2 quart baking dish.

* Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, or until hot. 

* Alternatively, use this to stuff a turkey, chicken or Cornish hen.  Allow 1/2 cup stuffing for each pound of meat.
