1½ cup Golden raisins
¾ cup Uncooked wild rice
¾ cup Uncooked brown rice
¾ cup Broth or water
1 teaspoon Salt (opt)

Meanwhile, in a medium-sized skillet, saute the onion in the butter over medium heat until translucent, about 5 minutes. Remove from skilet and set aside.

When rice is done, drain raisins (save bourbon) and stir them into the cooked rice. (cover to keep warm) Add the reserved bourbon to the onions and cook on high heat until the liquid evaporates and onions turn golden, about 2 minutes. Stir onions and pecans into rice.
