1 cup Natural Delights Medjool dates, pitted and chopped
4 cups cooked wild rice mix (we like brown rice/wild rice mix)
1 onion, chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
3 Tbsp butter
1 tsp dried rosemary
1 Tbsp dried thyme
1 cooking apple, peeled, cored and chopped
⅔ cup ham, diced
½ cup dried apricots, diced
¾ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
Cook wild rice mix as instructed to yield 4 cups.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Sauté onions and celery in butter on medium high heat for 4 to 5 minutes, or until soft. Stir in rosemary and thyme and remove from heat.
In a large bowl, combine cooked rice with onion-celery herb mixture and add chopped Medjool dates, apple, apricots and ham. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon into a buttered 2-quart baking dish.
Cover and bake for 30 minutes or until hot.
