I feel a little embarrassed to call this a side dish. It really is more of a dessert.
It's apples, cider, a little butter, a little sugar. Yup. Sounds like dessert to me.
I loved making this, I loved smelling this and I really loved eating it. Oh yea, I ate way too much of it.
I suggest you skip the pie and just eat more of this rice.
Adapted from Sugar Crafter
2 tbsp. butter
1 1/2 cups apples, peeled and diced
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce (I used homemade)
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
2 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tbsp. maple syrup
1 cup arborio rice
3/4 cup white wine
1 cup apple cider
2 1/4 cups water
In a medium sauce pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add in the apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar and maple syrup. Cook until softened.
Pour in the rice and then cook 1 - 2 minutes. Add in the wine.
Bring to a simmer, stirring frequently, until the rice has absorbed most of the wine. Continue this process with the cider and water, adding them 1/2 cup at a time until the rice has absorbed all the liquid. Cook until al dente and then remove from heat.
