Rice with sour cherries or bilberries is a popular accompaniment to Persian kebabs. One evening, lacking both, I made the rice with dried cranberries: Their sweet-sour flavor was right on the money. Dried cranberries and cherries are sold at specialty food shops, natural foods stores, many supermarkets, and by mail from American Spoon Foods.
