Gwen and her Jeweled Rice            

Gwen's Jeweled Rice Ingredients

Jasmine Rice Toasted Slivered Almonds Raw Pistachio Nuts, Chopped Golden Raisins Currants Barberries (remove pebbles) Candied Orange Peel


Cook rice with low water so kernels are separate (not sticky). To candy the orange peel, cut the peel off orange(s) or kumquats and completely remove pith. Cut peel into slivers. Boil 1 1/2 cup water and 2 cup sugar. Place peel in sugar water and cook 1/2 hour. Place lime juice in water 5 minutes before finished. Drain syrup. Quickly sauté each "jewel" set (e.g., raisins, currants, etc.) separately in 1-2 tbs olive oil over medium heat to plump/glisten. Use slotted spoon to place in ribbons across rice. Mix to serve
