Then And Now #7 - Uncle Ben's Rice

Uncle Ben's Rice mix, as seen here in the ad below from 1969. Their recipe in the advertisement sounds yummy (click on it to make it larger), except I would leave out the turkey liver, and I'd rather use fresh mushrooms:
And as found today in my cupboard:
I also have a recipe somewhere for using this mix for stuffing Cornish game hens. You add dried cranberries, and I think you pour orange juice over the hens before roasting. I've used it twice, and of course I guess it's more of a fall or winter dish - but they were really good!

Sounds very good, your recipe and the other. I'll even keep the livers. Love T
