I always get so excited when I see that a new or unique product is kosher. I can’t resist bringing it home. But then it frequently sits on my shelf – and sits and sits. So I was very glad to find this recipe that uses the Apple Cinnamon jelly  I “had to have”. This is a nice side dish for your Chanukah brisket.
2 boxes long grain and wild rice
3 cups water
½ cup dried cranberries
1 cup Apple Cinnamon jelly
½ cup sliced almonds (optional)
Combine rice, season packet and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in jelly and cranberries and let stand until absorbed – 5 to 10 minutes. Garnish with sliced almonds if desired.
