Kid Territory:Recipes: Rice-A-Rhino

What's gray, very large, endangered, and crazy about apples? That's right, a rhinoceros! Did you know a group of rhinos is called a crash? If you think about their size, power, and poor eyesight, that's a perfect name for them. Did you also know those giant mammals are herbivores?

Apples are special treats the rhinos get when the Photo Caravan Safari trucks filled with visitors travel through the field enclosures at the Wild Animal Park. So in honor of the mighty rhinoceros, let's have Rice-A-Rhino for dinner tonight.

  • 1 1/3 cups peeled, diced apples
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups instant rice

Combine apples, orange juice, water, butter, salt, and cinnamon in a large saucepan.

Stir until mixture boils.

Stir in rice.

Cover with a lid and remove from heat. Let stand for 5 minutes.

Serves 4 hungry rhino-lovers.
