Boiled Rice 1 Cup Rice 2 Quarts Boiling Water 1 Tablespoon Salt Pick Over Rice; Add Slowly To Rapidly Boiling Water, A Few Grains At A Time So As Not To Check Boiling Of Water

After all rice has been added, stir once only, using a fork to avoid breaking grains. Boil thirty minutes, or until soft, adding salt when nearly cooked. Drain in coarse strainer, and pour one quart hot water over the rice; put in dish and place in warm oven to dry off.

The water should be boiling all the time you are adding the rice. That is why you should add a few grains at a time. If you put all the rice in at once, the water will stop boiling and the rice grains will all stick together instead of each one being separate and distinct as it should be in properly cooked rice.

Plain boiled rice is usually used as a vegetable in place of potatoes. Save water in which rice was cooked and use it for soups and gravies.
