1 small onion (diced) 1 cup water
1 cup celery (diced) 1 pint half-and-half

Chery Wild Rice Fruit Delight

3/4 cup raw wild rice 3/4 cup cherry brandy
2 cups water 2 bananas (sliced)
1 lb fresh bing cherries (pitted/sliced) 1 cup sliced almonds
1 cup cream (whipped) 1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Cook wild rice in a covered saucepan until very tender (almost mushy) about 40-60 minutes. This is very important because the cherry brandy seems to harden the wild rice. Add cherry brandy and simmer uncovered until excess moisture is evaporated. Refrigerate. This will keep in the refrigerator for a week--in the freezer indefinitely.

Pit and slice cherries, slice bananas. Combine with wild rice and almonds. Whip cream, powdered sugar and vanilla until thick. Set some aside for topping. Fold whipped cream and wild rice and fruit mixture together. Refrigerate. Before serving, stir mixture and serve. Top with whipped cream, topped with almonds and cherries.
