Side Dish

Cranberry Rice

1 orange

8 ounces fresh cranberries

2 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons sugar, or more to taste

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

A few fronds dill

3 cups cooked long-grain brown rice

Grate the orange peel to yield 1 teaspoon, then cut several very thin strips of peel (no pith) and reserve for finishing the dish. Squeeze 3 tablespoons of juice from the orange directly into a large saucepan.

Add the zest, cranberries, honey, sugar and a pinch each of salt and pepper to the saucepan and heat over medium heat. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring often, until all the cranberries have burst and the mixture has thickened. Taste, and add sugar as needed; it should be a little tart.

Finely chop the dill to yield 2 teaspoons.

Gently stir the cooked rice and dill into the cranberry mixture, cooking until just heated through. Garnish with strips of orange peel. Makes 4 servings.
