   Recipe by: Jo Anne Merrill
   Preparation Time: 3:00
   * Use half nonfat and half whole milk, or all nonfat for lower fat
   content.
   
        Substitute canned milk for the regular milk for a very rich flavor.
   The cooking time will vary greatly, anywhere from 1-1/2 to 3-1/2 hours.
   The longer it cooks the thicker it will be.
        It is important to have the dried apricots minced. Put all
   ingredients into crockpot. Stir to blend well. Cover and cook on high 1-
   1/2 hours, stir once after about 1 hour. Or, cook on high for the first
   30 minutes, turn to low and cook as long as you desire. Check after the
   first 2 hours of low cooking and stir. If rice is not absorbing the milk
   quickly enough, turn the crockpot up to high again. Keep cover on at all
   times.
   
        Crockpot temperatures vary widely among different brands. Only
   experimentation can tell you the correct amount of time for cooking in
   your crockpot. Rarely will a crockpot recipe fail, though, as the long,
   slow cooking process does not require precise timing.
