❁ When brown rice is processed to make white rice, the bran layer and the germ - and their nutrients - are removed. White rice labeledenriched has some nutrients added back. Enriched rice should not be rinsed before cooking.
❁ Look for cranberries that range in color from light to dark red and are plump, glossy, and firm. White berries mixed in with the red do not need to be discarded. They are mature and have a milder flavor.
❁ Avoid berries that are shriveled, soft or decaying.
