Fruited Rice Mix

Total Time

Prep: 10 min. Cook: 30 min.


about 5 cups dry mix (each cup makes 4-6 servings)

The way I came upon this mix is very fitting—a friend gave me a container of it as a gift one Christmas. The next year, I gave it to many friends, all dressed up in decorated mason jars. Every single one asked for the recipe! I learned to cook through trial and error. I've been doing it for 30's my favorite pastime. My husband and I live on a 50-acre farm, where we breed and race horses. We also raise chickens and lambs. Our six children are grown, and now we're the grandparents of eight youngsters.


  • 3 cups uncooked long grain rice
  • 1 cup chopped dried apples
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins
  • 1/3 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/4 cup chicken bouillon granules
  • 3 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons curry powder


  1. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and store in an airtight container.
  2. To prepare rice mix: In a large saucepan, combine 1 cup mix with 2 cups water and 2 tablespoons butter. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 25-30 minutes or until water is absorbed.
