    MissTiff16's Note:

    I started doing this to save some time in the evenings. I don't like using that 10 minute Uncle Ben's but I do like having my rice ready that fast ;O). I really like using sushi rice! Use whatever rice you prefer!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cook as directed in rice cooker (or your preferred method).
    2. 2
      When rice is done immediately rinse, in strainer, with cold water till rice is cool (to stop cooking). Fill ziplock baggies (quart size) with 2 cups of rice each. Flatten out and remove air. Makes 4 bags. (You can do 1 cup bags too ~ Use smaller baggies like sandwich or snack ones) I usually have 1/2 - 1 cup rice leftover which I just make a little dish for myself with.
    3. 3
      Use one bag for 2 of you ~ Two bags for 4 of you :O) Just take out of the freezer in the morning and throw in the fridge till you start cooking!

      I have been doing this for a while now......never thought to post it so other knew also. Works great everytime. When I need to make rice because freezer is empty, I usually cook a whole bag and then package and freeze into meal size portions and individual portions for a fast lunch, just add left over meats.

      This is a great idea! It worked perfectly. However, I forgot to thaw it in the fridge so when I was needing it, I microwaved it for 5 minutes, like another reviewer said. Great every time. (tried this 3 times so far) I don't like the minute rice either, so I am glad to have this back up plan. Thanks.

      Love this!!! SO EASY!!! When I'm making rice for dinner, I up the amount so that I can restock the freezer. I freeze 3c amounts (best for my family) ... just take straight from the freezer and put in the microwave for 5 min and you have perfect rice every time!!!
