Directions

  1. In a saucepan with a good fitting lid bring water, salt and optional ingredients if desired to a boil. The salt and butter are simply for flavor. The vinegar keeps your grains separated and gives you a prettier dish. No one will taste the vinegar at all!
  2. Add rice and stir.
  3. Cover and reduce heat to medium low. You will know that your temperature is correct if a little steam is visible leaking from the lid. A lot of steam means your heat is too high.
  4. Cook for 20 minutes.
  5. DO NOT LIFT LID!
  6. The steam that is trapped inside the pan is what allows the rice to cook properly.
  7. Remove from heat and fluff with fork.
  8. Serve!
