    Tips and Tricks

    • Cooked rice can be frozen and saved for another meal. We recommend consuming within 2 weeks of freezing for maximum taste and to avoid freezer burn.

    • Many dishes call directly for day old rice, fried rice being the common example. Older rice is drier and less sticky, meaning it’s perfect for dishes needing less moisture or to put into dishes where moisture is added.
