For each method, I kept the recipe simple and repeatable:

    Tonight I cooked some brown rice on my propane stove.  I started with 1.5 cups of rice and added water.  I was taught a trick to add water to about double the height of the even layer of rice.  That's the method I use for "measuring".

    Here are the images.

    so cooked 2 cups of buckwheat, soaked it for about 8 hours in warm water.

    drained and rinsed it about 5 times as it is quite gelatinous.

    add 3 cups of water and bring to a boil

    once boiled i added 2 tablespoons of butter and 1 teaspoon of salt.
    simmer for about 15 minutes or less.

    This is most certainly done! I am curious why your pot has no handles, I've never seen that. But definitely 2 cups of cooked grain.

    Rice on the gas stove top, served under garlic fried shrimp topped with a reduction of the garlic and shrimp pan drippings, juice of one lime, 1 tbsp hoisin, 1 tbsp honey, and 1 tbsp water.  From the garden, I added a diced shallot to the rice, a buttered delicata squash side, and a kale, carrot, and blue cheese salad.

    For dinner tonight, I worked on two Food Prep BBs, stovetop brown rice and stir fry. Here's the brown rice. The stove I used was my wood cookstove.

    Ingredients assembled - 1 cup raw brown rice and 2 cups bone broth.

    Brown rice cooking. Need to stoke the fire!

    Cooked rice, probably a little more than two cups.
