Apple Cranberry Wild Rice

Apple Cranberry Wild Rice
The perfect side dish for a fall dinner.
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup leeks, white portion chopped
1/2 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup wild rice, rinsed and drained
3 cups chicken broth
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup basmati rice
1/2 cup Wildtree Apple Cranberry Jam
1/4 cup dried cranberries

 Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
Add the leeks and pecans, sauté until the leeks are soft.
Add the garlic and sauté 1-2 minutes, making sure it does not brown.
Add the wild rice, chicken broth and salt. Cover and cook 60 minutes.
When there are twenty minutes left in the cook time add the basmati rice. When the rice is done cooking and tender (but not mushy), let stand 5 minutes longer covered. Drain any excess liquid. Add Wildtree's Apple Cranberry Jam and dried cranberries to garnish and serve.
