Ugh. Minute Rice - which i grew up on - ah, the friendly smiling face 
of Uncle Ben - tastes like paper pulp.

I cooked for about 15 when i made the feast for the King and Queen of 
the West at Pennsic in 2007. I used a Coleman stove and didn't burn 
the Jasmine rice.

But i will concede that at the average camping event, if cooking for 
a large group of diners less discerning than those assembled here, 
Minute Rice could sure save time and energy. I haven't cooked the 
stuff myself since the late 1960s, so maybe there has been some 
improvement in quality...
