I see "chefs" saying used left over rice to make fried rice on the food channel.

 

So are we in agreement that so long as it is cooled quickly and kept refrigerated and then heated properly the dish should be ok?  Keep Smokin!

Save me a plate.

We reheat rice all the time. In fact I just did last night.

So Foam, does that mean that your Boudin isn't safe to eat? Doesn't all that rice in there get reheated in the sausage?

Yes cool quickly, best way is to put rice into a colander, and run cold water over it. Straight into the fridge and you should be good.

You can make your Rice dish with confidence. You been around here long enough to know how to keep folks safe. Handle the rice right to start with. Then keep your new dish Hot or Cold throughout the gathering and all will be fine...JJ

My boudin could very easily not be safe, I do all I can to feel comfortable with it. I am sure that I have gotten the GI's from bad rice in the past. I would imagine everyone has at one time or another depending upon the frequency of eating rice and the abilities of the cook. We get it from any food unsafely maintained or prepared.

 

Just like we can get botulisum from bad sausage, we eliminate all the possibilities possible, even to the fact of adding cure now to be safe. Doesn't rice deserve care? For a few cents more why would you chance it?

I live in probably the most predominate rice eating american section of the US. Unless you are talking in mass quanities, I would ask why would you re-heat. I throw rice out a couple a times a week. you always cook more than needed. You could make rice pudding with the left overs but here rice is a mainstay not so much a desert food.

 

Rice is too easy to make. Its the cheapest starch to buy. You can usually taste reheated rice. 

 

Rice is the fastest of all starches to turn to sugar. Its why it spoils so fast, its why runners and athletes eat it. Its like jet fuel in the human body because of it. What I am saying is, it is the fastest and easiest for the body to convert to food/energy that it can use.

 

I know, I ramble. Its too easy to make fresh delicious steaming hot rice at very little cost, why would you reheat it? Its abundant, its inexpensive, its simple to make, are ya just lazy?

 

 

All that being said, I do immediately freeze some ziplocs of rice to use with seal a meals (go cups) for my Baby sis to carry off to work. That way she doesn't need to leave the office if busy and still get a good meal, and she can apprecaite some outstanding food I have prepared. LOL  In a ziploc, open the zipper just a wee bit and nuc in the microwave. I don't freeze wet or gooie rice!

 

I had been waiting for boudin to jump out. I expect my boudin to be reheated as with sushi as fried rice etc.

 

Although if a neighbor or friend or anyone invited me to have gumbo and pulled out a pan with yesterday's rice to use, I would not say a word. But I wouldn't accept an invitation again. The same could be said about Uncle Ben's minute rice. 

 

I think you missed my point, 

 

" It's too easy to make fresh delicious steaming hot rice at very little cost, why would you reheat it? Its abundant, its inexpensive, its simple to make, are ya just lazy?"

Lots of info on Rice, gets you thinking for sure.  Here is a rice story, Back in the early to mid 90's I was working out of Houston, Our Office had a nice size kitchen. Our Accountant was Chinese, he had a rice steamer and had rice all the time. He would leave the rice in the cooker, never refrigerate it and eat it till it was all gone the make some more. I questioned him about leaving it out, his response was "I've always done it this way". I never ate any of his rice unless it had just been cooked.

Had an employee of Ethnic background re heat leftover rice everyday for lunch. Says he couldn't survive if he didn't have rice everyday.
Imagine the country's that don't have the proper care for food handling but there main food is probably rice.
If it was a huge issue , I'm sure there would be more warnings about it.

According to all the great information being posted on the subject (no sarcasm--I'm serious), I figure I should have died about 65 years ago.  I think I've broken just about all the "do not ever.." rules when it comes to rice.

 

Maybe I'm just lucky, maybe not......

Hi Gary - Whilst the symptoms of B. Cereus infection can be unpleasant it is not usually life threatening and deaths from it are very rare. Maybe that stomach ache or nausea that you have sometimes felt wasn't caused by the Moonshine after all :biggrin:

HAAA!  Keep that stuff away from open flames and don't get any on the paint of the car!!!!!  :icon_eek:  I ain't tuff enough for that stuff!!  It was in a plastic water bottle; I put in in a glass jar so it didn't eat through the plastic!  :icon_lol:  Have fun guy's.  Thanks for the advice.  Keep Smokin!

First taste of Shine, I was 17. I was full of PI$$ and Vinegar and thought I was invincible. An old southern gentleman I worked with came back from North Carolina with a few gallon of his families finast and offered me a hit. I took the jug and took a couple of big swallows, stuff was as smoooooth as a cold glass of water!. Mo said, " Whoa Boy! Easy on that stuff, it will sneak up on you and bite hard..." I shugged him off with a smirk. About 10 minutes later, BAM! I could barely walk and was totally Wacked! Learned a lesson that day...Moonshine is Sippin' Liquor...JJ:icon_redface:
