Staff note :

Thank you for your patience. The intent of this group of BBs is to cook the same grain four different ways for flavor/texture comparison. The addition of lentils is under discussion.

I used this recipe: https://slowcookermeals.com/crock-pot-rice/

3 cups rice
1/2 tsp salt
6 cups water

Mixed in crockpot. Cooked on high for a little over 2 hours. So easy!

I used Sona Masoori rice - it's an Indian rice that we really like.

Here is my submission for the Food - Sand - Grain BB.

I cooked 4 dry cups of long brown rice.

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
 - you must produce at least two cups of grain
 - you must use a rice cooker, crock pot or Instant Pot (other brands of pressure cookers are fine)

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must provide:
Attachment 1   - a picture of the uncooked grain in your cooker
Attachment 2   - a picture of your cooked grain in your cooker (clearly at least 2 cups of cooked grain - if it isn't clear, make it clear with an extra picture)

Clarifications:
- All food prep and preservation BBs strictly prohibit plastic, teflon or aluminum touching the food at any point

Lunch today... and plenty of leftovers! I was worried that my rice cooker would be too small to cook two cups, but it pulled through! I used one cup white rice and one cup brown rice (the little thing has trouble getting brown rice fully cooked on its own). I also threw in some salt, garlic, and dried green onion.


One cup brown, one cup white.


Rice in the pot. I grabbed some to show it off because the water was starchy.


You got this lil guy.


Done!
