I used a crock rice chart for this. I posted it in a "Tips" entry. I dusted off the old single setting 1 1/2 quart crock and tried the smallest amount first. If it tanks, not as much to chuck. If it works, I have 4 single serving meals worth of rice. The small crock insert fits nicely in the fridge. No dishes until it is all gone!
Winner, Loser or Meh
This was not terrible. It was great the next morning out of the fridge. I will not be a snob about making rice like this. I will be a snob about serving it to company. I have read horror stories about crock rice. The common plot involves gummy sticky on the outside, still crunchy on the inside. I got a tiny bit of gummy, and chewy on the inside. This took 3 hours, not 2 1/2 as called for in the recipe.
I served it with a scoop of Cream of Mushroom Soup and salt and pepper. No complaints.
I used a single setting 1 1/2 quart crock pot for this. It's only setting is high.
