I love rice as a side or with a stir fry…  and as a little girl, one of my favorite desserts that my mom used to make was rice with butter, cinnamon and sugar.    Just regular rice served hot with a blob of butter on top and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar.  Before you say eww, try it!  Delish!

Rice is generally pretty easy to cook but it can sometimes end up globby and sticky which (unless you’re making sushi) you don’t want!  Here are some tips to make sure you get perfectly fluffy rice every time!

      • Rinse your rice well under cool water before cooking (until the water runs clear).  This will remove any excess starch or particles.
      • Read the package.  I know this sounds silly, but different varieties of rice will have different cooking times & different ratios of water/rice.
      • Add 1 teaspoon of lemon juice or white vinegar ( & salt) to the cooking water.
      • No peeking!  Once your rice begins begins to boil, turn the temperature down to low and don’t lift the lid.  Once the time is done, remove from heat and let sit 5 minutes (no peeking).

Voila!  Perfect fluffy rice for Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken or Sweet & Sour Chicken!
