Step 1

In a saucepan with a good fitting lid bring water, salt and optional ingredients if desired to a boil. The salt and butter are simply for flavor. The vinegar keeps your grains separated and gives you a prettier dish. No one will taste the vinegar at all!

Step 2

Add rice and stir.

Step 3

Cover and reduce heat to low. You will know that your temperature is correct if a little steam is visible leaking from the lid. A lot of steam means your heat is too high.

Step 4

Cook for 20 minutes.

Step 5


Step 6

The steam that is trapped inside the pan is what allows the rice to cook properly.

Step 7

Remove from heat and fluff with fork.
