Default Re: Brown rice

Brown rice turns out to have less moisture and is not as sticky as white rice so not an ideal medium to hold itself together in any kind of shape. It is possible, though, as mentioned above, to cook brown rice a certain way to make it more sticky. Using a fancy rice cooker is one way. Soaking the rice in water(usually 2:1 ratio of water to rice-so if you're cooking 6 cups of rice, use 8 cups of water) for about an hour before cooking it will soften it up and make it stickier.
Brown rice musubis sure do sound good! I would've bought one even if it was more than 50 cents!
