An interesting Russian Rice recipe is a combination of rice, cherries, sugar and rum. Use as a side dish with roasted meats.
Put the rice, which has been previously boiled, in a glass dish. Take a gill of water, with the sugar, and boil for 20 minutes. When it is somewhat cool, add the spirits to it, and pour it over the rice.
Serve it very cold, with maraschino cherries or with slices of canned pineapple. Apricots can be used instead of pineapple.
