Sticky, Mushy Rice...HELP

jcattles | Mar 1, 2008 02:20 PM

I don't know what I do, but everytime I make rice, it's an overcooked, mushy, sticky mess. I'm not sure if altitude has anything to do with it. I live above 7200 feet. I have tried rinsing, not rinsing, a rice cooker (with & w/o extra water), stovetop (gas), and boiling in water and draining. What am I doing wrong? Every once in awhile I get it right, but never the same way twice. Help!!!!
