Golden Pilaf with Apricots, Raisins and Almonds

“I saw this on the back of a Goya rice box and thought it sounded great. There are a couple of similar variations already on the site, but I particularly like this one because I like the flavor the Goya Sazon seasoning adds. I substitute Zante currants for the raisins as my husband doesn't like raisins and I love currants.”
