Basic Cooking: On the Stove: In a quart pan, bring 1-1/2 cups of water to a boil. Stir in 1 cup of Village Harvest Jasmine rice. Cover tightly and simmer at low heat for 18-20 minutes. Remove from heat, keeping covered for 5 minutes. Fluff with fork and serve. In the Microwave: Combine 1 cup Village Harvest Jasmine Rice with 1-1/2 cups of water in a microwaveable bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave at high heat for 15 minutes. Remove from microwave and let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff with fork and serve. Tip: For softer rice, put in more water and simmer for a longer time. For firmer rice, put in less water and simmer for a shorter time.
