Spring is here, school is almost out, and I'm gearing up for another fun summer filled with cooking and blogging.
I plan on sharing some of my experiences with my pressure cooker. I love, love, love it. If you're on the fence about buying one, do not hesitate. Here's the one that I bought from Amazon:
In order to cook rice, I also needed to buy a small stainless steel bowl so that I could steam in my pressure cooker. I bought a set of three stacking Martha Stewart stainless steel bowls at Macy's. The middle bowl is 3-quarts and it fits perfectly.
I love to make Steamed Rice in my pressure cooker. I adapted it from Miss Vickie's book which I highly recommend.
Measure one cup of long grain rice into a small stainless steel bowl. Rinse it several times, then drain. Put 1 1/2 cups of fresh water in the rice, along with a little salt and a tablesoon of butter. Put one cup of water in the bottom of the pressure cooker. Put the rice (that is already in a small bowl) on the trivet on top of the water. Bring up to pressure. I move to the lower temperature burner, and start timing for 8 minutes. Let it come down to pressure naturally. You will get perfectly steamed rice every time. So delicious and so quick.
