Finally nailed my rice!
Image: https://image.ibb.co/cBANWb/20180102_111021.jpg


Up here at my wife's grandmother's house and she suggest 8 cups of water for 6 cups of rice.

Poured rice in the boiling water, stired for a minute, put lid on it, turned burner on low.
Didn't even look at it for 30 minutes.






Oh yea, it's for a chicken & andouille gumbo!

Looks good.

That is the key. My dad told me about when my grandfather (my mom's dad) got on to him for opening the lid on the rice. My dad is a good cook, but I guess in his younger days and still learning, he was trying to help out. He only bought Mahatma rice, and cooked it the same way forever. Boil, stir, cover, reduce, and don't even walk past the stove after that.

It also helps to have a pot with a tight fitting lid and a bottom thick enough to deliver even heat.

It took you this long to learn how to cook rice?

My mother always boiled it like pasta and dumped in a colander. Rinse until clear first.

I rinse until clear, add water until one finger digit above the rice, butter , salt and bring to boil. Stir once for the butter, low heat, tight lid. 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Never measure anything.

Rinsing removes the vitamin enrichment added to US rice.

I get enough vitamins elsewhere. If I want sticky rice-which I do for certain things I don’t rinse.

Yeah, I still only cook rice in a rice cooker. Phone call from my son about how to make rice ... my response, "Buy a rice cooker!"

He learned via a youtube vid.

I've messed it up quite a few times.

I've never claimed to be a pro, that's why practice makes perfect.

Same, minus the rinsing part.


I've always thought the colander method was the accepted method until recently. Boil it until the water is off, then steam in a colander while fluffing. Easy and perfect.

No more starchy sticky rice

Rice looks great!

Question: what are the red pieces in your gumbo?
