- 1/2 cup chopped green onions (green and white parts)
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh flat-leaf parsley
- Fry the bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until just crisp, about 5 minutes. Add the tasso and cook for 2 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon and tasso to paper towels to drain.
- Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onions and celery and cook, stirring, until softened, about 4 minutes.

Add the rice and apples and cook, stirring to coat the rice with the juices, about 1 minute.
- Add 2 cups water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the water has been absorbed, about 20 minutes.
- Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Stir in the reserved bacon and tasso, green onions, and parsley. Serve hot.
