   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2  gallon        milk -- * see note
    1      cup           rice
    1      cup           sugar
    3      tablespoons   margarine -- solid
      1/4  teaspoon      salt -- optional
    1      teaspoon      vanilla extract
      1/2  cup           dried apricots OR peaches -- minced
      1/4  teaspoon      ground cinnamon
 
 * 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.
