Sequel to Burnt Rice: Inspiration in the Kitchen
September 5, 2008 7:18am CST
That rice i burnt while i was here writing about cooking, remember? Anyhow, i burnt the rice and planned to throw it. But a light bulb flashed above my head while pouring the a bit crispy rice on a plate. So i sauted onions in butter, added the unburnt but slightly smoky-smelling rice, then salt and a sprinkle of water to soften it a bit. It did not only salvaged the rice, it tasted yummy too. Do you salvage burnt foods? or slightly burnt ones? How? It's great to share ideas about this.

hi pinkytabor I tried that but my rice was too badly sorched and just tasted horrid so my experiment was a failure. I think too badly burnt foods should only go one place , the waste disposal unit. they cannot be salvaged. however wellbrowned bread can be used for croutons or for breading other foods for frying and makes it really delicious.
