Brown Sugar Rice Pudding
Remove from the heat and drop in the dried cherries. Let them sit for 3 minutes to absorb the liquid and plump up.
Combine the rice, milk, sugar, and salt. Bake in the prepared baking dish for 1 hour, stirring often so the rice doesn't settle to the bottom.
Stir in the lemon rind, cinnamon, and cherries.
Return the dish to the oven and bake 1-1/2 hours more, or until the milk has been absorbed.
