DIRECTIONS

  • In a large saucepan, bring water to a boil.
  • Add rice (and salt, if using) and stir. Bring back to a boil.
  • Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes partially covered, stirring once.
  • Drain water well and place back into warm pan, Cover and let sit OFF HEAT until ready to serve. I wait at least 10 minutes.
  • Fluff with a fork and serve.
  • If using an electric stove, you may need to use 2 burners to reduce the heat to a simmer more quickly (one for high temperature, one for medium-low or low).
  • Makes plain, fluffy rice. Adjust seasonings as you wish. (Salt, chicken stock, saffron, raisins, almonds etc.).
  • Times are for 10 minute cook and 10 minute rest.
