*1-1/2 cups parboiled quick-cooking rice or 3 cups cooked rice can be substituted.

- Stir cranberries into rice mixture. Cool to room temperature. Refrigerate until serving time.
A Chinese restaurant with take-out is never far away. If you don't have time to make long-cooking rice, or don't have parboiled rice in your cabinet, pick up cooked rice for take-out. For an even faster alternative, plump cranberries in orange juice, then add to 2 pounds of prepared rice pudding.
