DIRECTIONS

  • 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!
  • Add rice and stir.
  • 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.
  • Cook for 20 minutes.
  • DO NOT LIFT LID!
  • The steam that is trapped inside the pan is what allows the rice to cook properly.
  • Remove from heat and fluff with fork.
  • Serve!
