How I make rice

Someone wrote in asking me how I make my rice. The truth is...I cheat. I use a rice cooker. When I married my husband I had one of these that I used as a vegetable steamer. I never knew that it would become something I would use 3-4 times a week. This is actually our 4th rice cooker because we use them so much we wear em out. There are a few tips I will give you.

First, when I met my husband I had no idea you had to rinse the rice. Apparently YOU MUST RINSE THE RICE. So. I do. I fill it with water, swish it and drain. Lather rinse repeat. Also, for 1 cup of rice you are supposed to put 1 cup of water. However, I feel it works better to put just over a cup. Or two cups of rice and just over two cups of water. Finally, before you scoop it out, it works best if you get the scoop wet.

Add your rice



Fill with water just over the line

Push cook

Wait fifteen minutes and BAM!

Fluffy white rice every time!

No need to fuss with the silly pans!
