Rice water is an effective home remedy for upset stomach and
much more. It's really easy to make. Here's how to make rice
water..

Directions for making rice water:
To make rice water, you really just need to rinse rice 2-3 times,
and save the water; however, here is how to make it to help
someone hydrate:

  • Step one: Gather the ingredients:
    1 cup of rice (any kind, except wild rice)
    4 cups of water, preferably purified

  • Step two: Boil purified water (recommend Big Berkey Water
    Filter), then add the rice. Swish it around the pot and allow
    the rice to become cloudy and milky.

  • Step three: Strain rice and serve the broth like tea. Serve
    hot or cold, but it's more soothing to as a hot tea for
    someone who is ill. You're done. It really is that easy.

  • Step four: Store any remaining amount of rice water in a
    mason jar. It will last for up to four days in your refrigerator.

  • Step five: Compost the remaining rice, give it the chickens,
    or add it to your favorite soup. Preppers waste not (even
    rice).

So there you have it. Making rice water requires two ingredients:
rice and water. The simple process of making rice water
suspends starch from boiled rice until it dissolves in the water
and it's this starchy goodness that can nurse someone back to
health. Think of it next time someone in your family or group is
ill. Think of it also for your skin and hair! There are many ways to
use your rice water.

you plan to cook. "Cleaning rice" is not only an unnecessary step,
but now you know it will remove the nutrients your body needs.

for
making ricewater, which is good to know if you have someone
ill in the household.

Rice water is also a luxury that every prepper can afford for
cosmetic purposes, too. Put it rice to good use!
