White rice in the electric pressure cooker, comes out perfect every time!

I wish this photo did the fluffy, perfect, grains of white rice justice! Really, every time I have done this method in my pressure cooker, it comes out perfect. Not too sticky, not too wet, not too hard. So give it a shot and tell me what you think.

Let me begin by saying that I know this works for white rice, I haven’t tried this method with other types of rice yet, so keep that in mind.

Start by spraying the pot of your electric pressure cooker with a little bit of cooking spray. It doesn’t have to be the whole pot, the bottom part that will have rice in it will be all that needs sprayed.

Once you have sprayed, pour in the desired amount of rice. Once the rice is in, add water. The amount of water you need will be twice the amount of rice, minus 1/4 cup. Example: If you use 1 and 1/2 cups of rice, you will want to put in 2 and 3/4 cups of water. Double is 3, minus 1/4 makes it 3/4. So always double the water, minus 1/4 cup.

Next, dump the water into the pressure cooker and give it a small stir to mix it.

If you have a 7 in 1 type pot like the Instant Pot which is what I use, than you are going to just hit the rice function button. However, if you have an electric pressure cooker that doesn’t have the pre-programmed settings, set it for 10 minutes.

Put the lid on, seal it and let it do its thing!

I have cooked this rice ahead of time and warmed it up, and it was still perfect! No gloppy, sticky mess!

DIY Foot Warmer~ Rice Filled

I don’t know about where you are, but it is COLD here!  We have even spent some time in the negative digits, which is unusual for our area!  I am usually warm, I don’t even bother with a coat most of the time.  So if I am cold, I can’t imagine how people that are always cold are feeling!  Socks just aren’t cutting it when I am sitting around the house.  So I came up with this idea; if I could make a bag of rice to help soothe aches and pains, why not do the same thing for cold toes?  I love how it turned out!

You will need:

Rice

Flannel (probably a fat quarter would do)

Fleece (I am using scraps, but I think a half yard would be more then enough)

Sewing machine

Scissors

Thread

The one I am making my tutorial off of is a gift for my husbands Grandma.  She lives alone and is petite.  If you are going to have a man using this, you may want to go with a larger size square.  I cut one 12×12 square of my white flannel.  Then, I folded the blue fleece in half and cut a 12×12 square out of it as well.  If you fold it in half, that will leave you with a 12×24 rectangle when you unfold it.  This just makes one less side you have to sew together!

Turn your flannel square inside out (so the decorative sides are facing each other) so you have a 12×6 rectangle.  Sew along the long, raw edge only.   Once that is sewn, turn it right side out.  Now you will only have 2 raw edges .

Take your fleece (blue), and pin the flannel (white) to one side of the right side.  Once it is pinned to the top edge of your fleece, you will turn your fleece rectangle wrong side out, and sew all but the top edge of that as well.   In this picture I have my white flannel pinned to one side of my blue fleece.  I then sewed up both sides, leaving the top edge open.  You can leave a smaller section open if you would like.  Just make sure you leave enough room to turn it right side out again.

Fill with rice.  You want to fill it about half way.

Once it is filled half way with rice, you can sew up that remaining side.  I left the whole top of mine opened and tried a decorative stitch to close it.  Any stitch will work, as long as they are close together to prevent your rice from falling out.  I recommend a machine for this, unless you are a super experienced seamstress and can get really even, small stitches.  Rice is small and will fall out anywhere.

Once you are done, warm in the microwave for no more then 2-3 minutes.  If you are giving as a gift, make sure you let the recipient know the same thing.  Also, it is a good idea to microwave it 1-2 times before gifting it.  It gets a little damp the first few times, and that way you can also make sure it works the way you want it.   Beware, if you are going to try it, have enough material left over to make one for yourself.  They make your feet feel so good!  It is way too cold to try it right now, but I bet it would be great to leave in the freezer for a few hours-overnight and use on some too hot summer feet as well!
