I've got a quick question and i'm not finding an answer so far.

I'm trying to convert a recipe in the European style (weight rather 
than volume) and i'm stumped on how many cups of raw (i.e., uncooked) 
rice to a lb. I know this can vary with the type of rice, how much 
moisture it may have absorbed from the air - or how much it may have 
dried out over time.

This is for a soup/porridge, so the exact amount of grams is not 
going to matter, but i'd like to get into the ballpark in terms of 

Besides responding to the list, please e-mail me off-list, since i 
get the list as a digest and i hope to get an answer sooner rather 
than later.
