Purple Rice and Dried Cherry Stuffing

I love the texture and flavor of purple rice.  It has a good chew to it and the color is amazing.  To add to the flavor, I use a Belgian Quadrupel and dried montmorency cherries, along with some shallots to make this rice into Purple Rice Dried Cherry Stuffing.

Purple Rice and Dried Cherry Stuffing Recipe

Originally, this recipe was used as a layer for a between a deboned duck and pheasant in a Turducken.  It can also be roasted off and enjoyed with a Beer Brined Turkey or Roasted Goose.

Instructions
  • In a large bowl, rinse the rice until the water runs clear. This will prevent the rice from sticking together and forming a large lump of stuffing.
  • In a medium-sized pot with a lid, add butter. Place over medium heat and brown the butter. Add shallots and sauté for five minutes, until they become a light golden color. Add the dried cherries and orange zest, stirring to combine, cooking for another minute. Add rinsed rice and toast for three to four minutes, coating with the remaining butter. Deglaze with the The Reverend, then add the stock. Increase heat to high and bring mixture to a boil and season with salt. Partially cover the pot with a lid and turn heat to low. Cook the rice for 30 minutes, until the liquid has been absorbed by the rice, making it tender.
  • To use the rice stuffing for a Turducken, cool the rice completely before using.
