Hi, I'm Barbara Mattaliano from Goose Valley Natural Foods. Today, I'm going to teach you about the water-to-rice ratio when using a rice cooker. Different varieties of rice require different amounts of water to cook properly. For wild rice, for one cup of wild you want to use two and a half cups of water and the cook time is 45 to 55 minutes unless you are using a quick cook wild rice which is 25 to 35 minutes. For a brown rice blend, the water ratio is two cups of water to one cup of rice and the cook time is 30 to 40 minutes and for a white rice, the water ratio is one and a half cups of water to one cup of rice and the cook time is between 20 and 40 minutes. So cooking times may vary depending on the type of rice cooker you are using. So get to know your rice cooker and I'd like to start by maybe using a half a cup less of water to start and because you can always add more water at the end. You know, if you put too much water at the beginning, you'll be left with overcooked mushy rice so by decreasing the water by a half cup, it's a good trick until you know, the first few times that you're using a rice cooker to see how hot it runs.
