HOW MUCH RICE TO COOK AND HOW TO TEST FOR DONENESS
One cup uncooked long-grain rice will yield 3 to 4 cups cooked rice. One cup pre-cooked rice makes 2 cups cooked rice.
To test for doneness: Pinch grain of rice between thumb and forefinger. When no hard core remains, it is done.
TO REHEAT, REFRIGERATE, OR FREEZE RICE
For each cup of cooked rice, add 2 tablespoons liquid. Simmer in a covered saucepan 4 to 5 minutes.
Tightly cover cooked rice and refrigerate up to one week.
Freeze cooled rice in a freezer tray. When frozen, remove rice and wrap in plastic bag and store in sealed freezer container. Freeze up to 8 months. Reheat as indicated above.
