Rice in all its glory!

Having made a prepackaged long grain & wild rice and having it taste chalky, I've decided to make my own. Wild rice is available at my local supermarket, and I always have regular rice on hand.

Can anyone share their recipes with me? I'm looking for TNTs.

Speaking of Rissoto, I just can't imagine standing there for all that time just stirring. My back wouldn't allow for it anyway.

Only when I make a gravy do I "sit on it like an egg", as for how many people I have been called "donkeys" for making that rice dish wrong, I have a strange desire to at least try it(eating), but, NEVER to make it!!

I would like to try it too, but I'm not about to make it.

Goodnight, MM, I finally got all the posts read.

Night to you too!!
This site is still far too interesting to me...I could read things here happily forever...its even neater when you get to "know" people, & be able to match their user names & such...I hope to log in tomorrow, & hope that SOMEONE else has useful rice info for you at least...another confession...GAH...I use Uncle Bens, &, Rice-a-Roni too at times...when I want nice, sticky rice, I leave it to the pros, & just pop into a chiinese take-out to order rice. *hangs head in shame*
C-ya tomorrow!! :)

Thanks, anyway, Josie. I don't really want to try it that bad. Maybe someday in a restaurant to have it the right way.

No pressure cooker any more and as much as I liked having one in the past, I'd rather just cook things on the stove or in the oven.

For the same reason, I can't talk myself into a crockpot. I love perfuming the house with a slow cooking pot on the stove that I have to get up and stir once in a while.

Here is a chart on cooking times and amounts to use for all kinds of rice. I have this page laminated and taped to the inside of my cupboard door.
