Cook's Notes

This recipe calls for 3 parts water to 2 parts rice, which is less water than most package instructions call for but will result in perfect rice in a shorter amount of time. Use long-grain, not converted, rice.

    I make rice just as I do pasta. I try to double the amount of water to rice. I season the rice before it boils with salt, garlic etc. When done I just strain off the water. It keeps it moist and will sit longer if I need the extra time. I hope it helps!
