euriol did speak thusly:
>I guess to me bland and vile don't equate. Most of the time I cook rice any
>flavoring treatment to the rice is what I taste and not the rice itself.

I guess we use the word differently. To me, something vile is not
necessarily disgusting as may be the connotation you are using. When
I say something is vile, it simply means it is bad but in a more
emphatic sense, as in undesirable in the extreme.
Dehydrated, reconstituted starch products like Minute Rice or
dehydrated mashed potatoes are just not to my liking at all.
I hope that makes sense.
But anyway... the suggestion somebody made for precooking your rice
and putting it in boiling bags is a good one. Saves a lot of time and
worry and cleanup. I'll have to use that one in the future. I've done
pre-packaging of lots of other foods for camping in the past and it
works great, all you have to do is boil water and put the bag in. A
few minutes later it's hot and ready to eat.
