1. Combine raisins and apricots in small bowl; add hot water to cover. Let stand at room temperature 15 minutes; drain.

3. Heat 2 cups (500 mL) water in large saucepan over medium-high heat to boiling. Stir in rice, orange rind and cinnamon stick; reduce heat to low. Simmer, covered, until rice is almost tender, about 15 minutes.

5. Whisk egg yolks and half & half in small bowl. Gradually add about 1 cup (250 mL) hot rice mixture to yolk mixture, mixing well. Gradually add yolk mixture to remaining rice mixture in pan, mixing well.
6. Cook pudding over low heat, stirring constantly, until yolk mixture has been absorbed, about 2 minutes; immediately transfer to bowl. Stir in raisins, apricots and dates; refrigerate, covered, until cold, at least 3 hours.
