More Black Rice from the Sun Oven

 

Black Rice

Today was the second time I’ve prepared the newly discovered (at least for me) black rice.

This time I made the mistake of following the directions on the package – add 4 cups of hot water to 1 cup of rice and simmer for 20 minutes – more closely. I suspected that was too much water and I was right. After an hour and a half in the Sun Oven the water had not been completely absorbed and the rice was overcooked. Back to the drawing board.

I do like the flavor, texture, and color of this rice enough to continue experimenting. Eventually I’ll hit on the perfect recipe for it. And when I do, I’ll share it here.
