How to Make Sweet Rice (Glutinous)

Sweet rice, isn't really sweet, it's a Glutinous rice, meaning sticky (not with actual gluten).  It cooks up a little like southern grits texture.  It's great for eating with soup for a filling meal.  It's also good for dessert type receipes and can be rolled into balls.

It can be pricey and hard to find.  I bought it at a Japanese Market in town, you can locate it on amazon, if you can't find it anywhere else.

2 Cups Sweet Rice
4 1/2 Cups Water
2 Tsp Salt
2 Tb Butter

Cook over high heat till boiling.

Turn stove down to Med-Low and Cook for 15 minutes

Remove from heat and let rest for 15 minutes

Give a good stir before serving.

I put a pile in the middle of a large bowl and poured our soup around it.  It was heavenly.
