  1. I have had this recipe written down from you for years! My son requests it all the time 🙂 One thing I am pondering today…have you ever tried it in the slow cooker? I’m thinking of trying it there instead of the stovetop.

    1. Hi Mike. Technically you could but they all have different flavors and sweetness. Plus lots have processed ingredients. This recipe is specifically useful for those who need A1 free milk too. Thanks!

    1. Hi Debra. Most grocery stores should have it in the baking section. It’s natural cane sugar that is dried out and crystallizes. It’s not processed like refined granulated and healthier. You could replace with regular if you’d like.

    1. Hi Syble. The pictures are actually of brown rice. Brown rice is more of a tan color anyways so I could see how it could be confused. The directions are correct for brown. If you wanted to use white the cooking time would be roughly half.
