This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Food Prep and Preservation

To complete this badge bit, you must cook at least 2 cups of grain in a rice cooker, crock pot or instapot.  (Note that this BB is part of a 4 part adventure in cooking grain in four different ways. Pseudograins are also allowed, but all four ways of cooking must be the same food prepared with 4 different cooking contraptions.)



This is a rice cooker

This is one of many types of rice cookers, and an article on the differences:



and how to use it:



To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
  - you must produce at least two cups of grain
  - you must use a rice cooker, crock pot or instapot (other brands of pressure cookers are fine)

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must provide:
   - a picture of the uncooked grain in your cooker
   - a picture of your cooked grain in your cooker (clearly at least 2 cups of cooked grain)

I cooked rice with a rice cooker today! I coated the inside of the rice cooker with coconut oil, so that the rice does not stick to the inside of the rice cooker. I used three cups rice and six cups of water.

This is the rice in the rice cooker before cooking.

I made wild rice again tonight!  This time with the Instapot.  We hadn't used it for rice before and I think we're sold on it.

I had to do this in 2 batches as we only eat 1 cup of porridge at a time (I've convinced my husband that he does actually like porridge).

I've never cooked oats in a rice cooker before, so this was an interesting experiment. My favourite so far is to cook them on the fireplace, it seems to be a nice low and slow cook bringing out a much creamier flavour.
