1 teaspoon grated nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
8 ounces wild rice

In large oven proof saute pan, heat oil. Cook celery, carrots and onions until soft, about 8 minutes.
Add the nutmeg, cayenne and rice and cook, stirring, to coat with oil.
Add the stock, bring to a boil and then add cranberries. Remove from stove, cover and bake 1 hour and 15 minutes at 350 degrees. When done all the liquid should be absorbed.
