You don't need a rice cooker to steam the perfect rice

  1. Rinse 1 cup of our FRESH California Japonica Rice until water runs clear

  2. Add rice to 1.5 cups (2 cups for brown rice) of gently boiling water in a medium saucepan with a TIGHT lid

  3. Simmer on LOW for 20 minutes (40 minutes for brown rice). DO NOT LIFT LID. (Grandma Knowles used to say, "Don't even LOOK at the lid!")

  4. Remove from heat (hands off the lid) and let stand for 5 minutes.

  5. Fluff it, butter it, season however you like, or just enjoy the natural sweetness of this amazing grain like a purist.

  6. ENJOY, knowing you're eating the freshest, best tasting rice good earth and hard work can provide.
