Rice as Pie Crust Weight

Jambalaya | Nov 17, 2003 02:28 PM

I blind baked a crust the other day and used rice as the weight. My question is once you have used the rice in this manner and subjected it to the heat of the baking process do you have to throw it out or can you cook it as you would if it wasn't baked in the oven?

I'm not trying to be cheap here, since I am well aware you could just save the rice and use the same batch each time. I'm just wondering if the heating process does anything to the rice or not.

Thanks
