    echo echo's Note:

    Give 1 of each rice mixture to one person or individual recipes to different people. Tie a festive ribbon around each jar or baggie and a tag or card with a message that includes THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS: "To cook, combine the rice mixture, 2 cups of cold water and 1 Tbs butter in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cover and cook over low heat 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Makes 4-6 servings." I got this recipe years ago from a book of "gifts from the kitchen" from the 1970s or 1980s. One recipe each of all 4 mixtures makes 2 gifts yielding 4-6 servings, so the way I came up with total servings is 4 x 2 x (4 to 6) = 32 to 48. (Also good to keep for yourself for when you're in a hurry or to take camping.)

      I made the vegetable rice mix, however I didn't have vegetable bouillon so I used chicken bouillon instead. I left out the salt because bouillon is already so salty. I also added 1/4 teaspoon chiptle powder per one cup of rice. I'll definitely make more of these to have on hand and for gifts. Penzeys is a good source for all the dried vegetable flakes.

      I made the lemon-dill rice mix and it went wonderfully with grilled fish. I did not have the bouillon powder and decided to cook the rice in chicken broth. Since chicken bouillon typically has salt, I think that 1 teaspoon salt would be to much for my taste. I did reduce the salt to 1/2 teaspoon even with the broth and it was plenty. I look forward to trying the others.

      Fun recipe to make. I've only tried one so far, the Onion Rice Mix, and it was very good. I'm giving some away, but keeping one of each to try for myself. Thanks, echo.
