Normal Cooking: Follow the recipe from step 2 to the end of step 3. Add the stock to the pan, stirring and bring to a boil. Season to taste, then cover the pan and simmer gently for about 20-30 minutes until the rice is tender (but not mushy) and the stock is absorbed. Add the raisins and pine nuts, using a fork. Cover and leave to stand for 5 minutes before serving as step 6.

Preheat the slow cooker if necessary – see manufacturer’s instructions.
2.
Heat the butter in a frying pan (skillet) and cook the onion for 5 minutes until softened.

4.

5.
Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours until the rice is tender (but not mushy) and has absorbed the stock.
