  1. Stir cooked rice, cranberries, hazelnuts, and maple syrup together in a heavy saucepan. Put saucepan over medium-high heat and cook until the mixture is heated through, about 3 minutes.
  2. Pour cream over the rice mixture; stir. Continue cooking until the cream is heated, about 2 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • To cook wild rice: At least 1 hour ahead of time, bring 4 cups water to a boil in a saucepan. Add 1 cup long-grain wild rice and bring water again to a boil. Cover pan and simmer rice until tender, about 45 minutes. Drain rice of any excess liquid in a wire mesh sieve. Store in airtight container until ready to use.
  • Dried cherries and blueberries can replace some or all of the cranberries. Try a mixture!
  • Slivered almonds are a fine substitution for the hazelnuts.

also good with fresh blueberries! (can do this with just wild rice and maple syrup with cranberries or blueberries, and serve cold)

I was not crazy about this. I followed the recipe exactly but it just isn't something I would make again.
