For years rice was something I just simply hated. Mom only ever made the white stuff which always, ALWAYS was either chewy or gummy and BLAND. So I hated it. Yes I tried adding salt, pepper and even butter to hers but that was just one thing she simply couldn’t master – kinda like me with a true New York cheesecake. I can make absolutely beautiful ones but the taste – nope, not right. Even when I use Mama Fantabulous’ recipe for hers which is heavenly (and she’s from New York as well), I just fail at it every single time. Anyway about 15 years ago or so I made brown rice and OMG it was incredible. I mean so flavorful and just perfect. Now the trick to making amazing flavored rice I’ll share in a bit but after that day I decided to explore more with various types of rice. Anyway I always made my rice on the stove but I found as I started to get into wild grains and so forth that it took upwards of an hour to make. I don’t have time for that! The box says ‘minute’ so it should take a few minutes… not an hour. LOL But then along came my dear friend, the Pressure Cooker!!! I mean why not, right?!
Out came my pressure cooker and in went the first batch…
You’ll never make rice any other way once you make it in a pressure cooker!
