"Here's a convenient recipe. It makes a little more than 7 pint jars. For many pressure cookers this is the best batch size. The excess is just enough for a tasty treat.
Use a whole 2 lb. bag brown rice (Lundberg's nutrifarmed is great.) with 6.5 cups water in a big pan. Be sure to turn the heat way down (almost off) for simmering. If it scorches it won't work as well. You may want to experiment with additives. Several tablespoons of flax seed meal (health food stores) is a favorite. Delicious and nutritious for us and the mushrooms."
That is the recipe I referred to. Just convenient. The recipe does not include that, as soon as the top jiggles on the pressure cooker, it is done cooking. This was in my pressure cooker manual, in a list of recipes. But I know brown rice needs cooked a little longer, so I let the top jiggle for 2-3 minutes. I will rinse and soak on my next batch, as I believe that sounds like the solution to my starch worries plaguing my brains.
I hope it turned out well, it's definately not scorched. I was correct to add the extra time. The starch has kindof transferred to the glass, and the rice is more easy to manipulate. Ive shaken the shrunken "test jar" and when smacking the bottom of the jar, the rice expanded from a rice ball, back to the size of the jar, after cooling for a good 4 hours.
I ended up taking the jars out of the pc early to test something, with grain (havent tried agar again just yet). I let one jar cool in the fridge one in my closet. No noticeable difference in condensation between cooling times with rice. But the difference in cooling times might not have been great enough... Thoughts?
