Whenever I make rice, wild or white, I make a double batch, 2 cups rice to 4 cups water, and add salt (check package directions).

I package the rice either in sandwich bags or quart size and stack them in the freezer. I like to do this as soon as possible after cooking, nuking is the easiest way to reheat.

I do mashed potatoes the same way. Really handy. Make it once, serve it several times without the work and dirty dishes.


If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

I think I'll go ahead and get another package of the rice. What's in the freezer will last for awhile, but I want more on hand for when I run out.
I just made up a kick butt batch of rice...more on it later as it is a portion of my Challenge Meal.
