    I love this site and this recipe made cooking rice easier! However, I noticed when I switched from an electric stove to a gas one, I had to increase cooking time from 15mins to 18mins :) Either way, this recipe made things much easier! Thanks!

    I have been making ‘Perfect’ rice for years using a large pot (2 qt) 3/4 filled with cold water, 1 tbsp vinegar, any flavor, and 2 cups rice. Bring to boil, turn down heat, stir once in a while and taste for doneness after about 7 minutes. Do not cover. strain rice when done to your taste. The rice can be rinsed in hot running water and held for other dishes etc. This way it never ‘glues’ together and I can make two or three times what I need for one meal to have on hand for other things as it keeps in the frig for about a week or freezes for about a month.
