How do You Make Rice?

First measure out the amount of rice you want to cook. Rice will double in volume, so if you want one cup of rice, measure 1/2 cup of rice and set aside. Then bring twice that amount of water to a boil in a suacepan. Add the rice, cover, lower the heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until all the water is absorbed by the rice and the rice is tender.
