How To Cook Rice Perfectly Every Time When I first started cooking rice I always seem to be in a hurry. That is a sure sign that it will not be good. Rice cannot be hurried. It takes time to do it right. But there are also a few things that people may not know when it comes to rice. Overall the best tasting rice is wild rice, or brown rice. They have the best taste and texture. But most people seem to be more familiar with long white rice or converted rice such as 'Uncle Ben's'. If one follows their recipe you will usually end up with a good product. However, more and more people are realizing that commercially altered food loses it food value. Therefore, it is nice to know how to cook raw unaltered foods such as white rice. The simplest of methods is to place an equal amount of water and rice in a crock pot. Simply turn it on low or medium and let it cook for an hour without lifting the lid. Knowing how hot your crock pot gets is important but one to one and one half hours should be enough. If it is on low it will not hurt if you leave it longer. If you prefer cooking on a stove you still use equal amounts of water. One method is to boil the water first either in the pot or in a kettle, pour the water into the pot, add equal mount of rice, stir, cook on lowest available heat for about 20-30 minutes. The amount of rice you cook will also vary the length of time. Tips It is usually best to wash white rice to get the excess starch off before placing into your cookware. Do not stir or lift rice while cooking because it makes it fall apart. Keep the lid on to trap in steam to help cook thoroughly. Only add margarine or butter after it is done cooking. Overall, the best way to cook rice is in a crock pot or steamer of some type.There are many types and models available. Have fun and enjoy your rice. A cookbook with over 350 recipes
