Spiced Rice 

1 cup white rice
1-in. piece ginger root, peeled
2 cups boiling salted water
1/2 cup seedless raisins
1/4 cup currants
1/4 cup chopped dried apricots
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
2 tsp. minced shallots
1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp. dried coriander
1 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 cup pine nuts, toasted

Cook rice and ginger in the boiling salted water until rice is tender, about 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, soak raisins, currants and apricots in hot water to cover; drain when plump. Remove ginger from cooked rice. Drain any excess water from rice.

Place rice in a warm casserole. Add pepper, nutmeg, shallots, lemon juice, coriander and olive oil to rice. Gently fold in plumped fruit. Sprinkle with pine nuts.

Makes 6 servings.

(NOTE: Dried cranberries, cherries or blueberries may be substituted for raisins.)
