Originating in Asia, rice is the most common staple crop on Earth. Brown rice is nutritionally superior. Rinse in cold water. Use 1 cup rice: 2 cups water. Bring to boil & simmer 40 minutes covered, serve. Brown rice retains the outer layers of the grain, only the indigestible husks having been removed.
Storage: Cool, dry & hygienic; away from direct light & strong odours.
