Freezing cooked brown rice in imitation of Trader Joe's product

farmersdaughter | May 26, 2007 07:50 PM

I have been buying a lot of precooked, frozen brown rice from Trader Joe's for weeknight meals when I don't have an hour to wait for the rice to cook. The product is pretty good, but it got me thinking that I should just do this myself on a weekend and freeze it in batches. There is a brown rice farmer at my farmers' market so I thought I'd give it a try. Looks to me like I just cook the rice and lay it on a cookie sheet in the freezer to "IQF" the grains, and then pack it up into freezer bags. Any advice, tips or tricks? Am I missing something?
