Rice, American Style


  • 2 1/2 cups of boiling water
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 cup of well-washed, unpolished rice


Place in a double boiler boiling water and then add salt. Now add slowly rice. Cover and cook until the rice is tender and the water absorbed. Remove the lid and then cover the rice closely with a clean napkin and cook for five minutes. This will fluff each grain of rice.

It is now ready to serve, either as a vegetable to replace the potato or prepared into many delectable dishes that our Oriental neighbors relish so keenly.
