There's a thread on the home cooking board asking what to do with leftover rice. A poster says "The refrigerator is not rice's best friend" SO true.
Is there a way to keep rice a day or two so it doesn't dry out or do I just need to pay attention to the above link to see what to do with my rice that has either dried out or congealed into a ball that I could bounce?
Due to calorie concerns, I don't eat a lot of rice at one sitting. It is a pain to make 1/2 cup of rice.
Will it go bad leaving it on the counter? If I put it in the fridge or freezer, is there something I can do to bring it back to life? Or is there some way of cooking it that keeps it from drying out? Maybe throwing some oil in while cooking?
It would be nice to just make one big batch of rice, throw it in the fridge and use it as the need arises.
Why does rice become so useless so quickly?
