To complete this badge bit, you must cook at least 2 cups of grain on a stove top. (Note that this BB is part of a 4 part adventure in cooking grain in four different ways. Pseudograins are also allowed, but all four ways of cooking must be the same food prepared with 4 different cooking contraptions.)
These are different types of stove tops and how to use them.
I cooked the rice tonight and ate some of it with my fried eggs and some home canned chow chow. The rice was cooked on an electric stove, I bought these stainless steel pots 39 years ago, back when we manufactured here.
1 cup white rice and 2 cups water in the pot , lid put on, bring to a boil then turn heat down a lot, set timer for 20 minutes.
I completed this BB over a number of sessions, because when I cook porridge it's usually just for me and I'm using 1/2 cup of oats at a time. My husband was unwell yesterday so I managed to do a double batch. That on top of 2 other 1/2 cup batches makes 2 cups.
I cooked some foraged wild rice tonight. It made about 8 cups of finished rice.
