EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Many supermarkets now carry a wide variety of dried fruits. Dried blueberries or cherries are delicious substitutes for the cranberries.

Toasting the almonds not only enhances their flavor and color but also helps prevent them from becoming soggy after they are stirred into the wild rice mixture.
