It's funny how some things like Minute Rice become tradition in old world recipes. Justine's lefse recipe demands Potato Buds. The thought of which makes Norse gods drop their hammers and walk slowly home.

Hey I never let a good rant get in the way of ....much. I like rice. I like brown rice a lot. With chicken gravy. I like white rice for dessert with butter and brown sugar. Paella. Risotto. Sushi, whatever. Jasmine Basmati CalRose. Mm.
 

 
I like sticky white rice best. I know, I'm really plain and simple that way.

It's a weird Nordic preservation technique that uses Lye to prepare/preserve fish. A similar process is used to make hominy from corn. Lutefisk is much more of an acquired taste... 

 
Lutfisk in Swedish. I remember seeing the salt-cod stacked against the outside of grocery stores before Christmas. Looked fascinating, but the taste... well there's a reason it's only served as a Christmas tradition.

I mean, why turn food into soap?

It's not the taste, it's the texture (says the fan of sushi).

I'm with you on the Hominy fanwagon, but this is sort of like saying lutefisk is just whitefish. I don't really care though, give me a big scoop with a lot of pork in it too.

I was taught how to cook basmati rice by a lady from Iran, we used to be neighbors. At the bottom of the pot it gets crusty and if you do it right it will fall on to the plate in one peice.
Vida called it tahdig, I just looked up the term because I was never sure what she said, and the children would get it
I looked up a pic for you, I can do this and I make great basmati rice now.

I've given up on evangelizing for staples. "I don't like rice!" How can you not like rice? I get that you can not have an opinion because rice tastes like nothing but that's just it: there's nothing to not like. "I don't like the texture of hominy." I'm sorry, but did you just say that with a mouthful of sushi? Open a can, put some goddam velveeta on it and throw it in the microwave for 30 seconds. WaLA instant gourmet mac & cheese they'll charge you $18 for at Applebees. It's corn, people! Not to be confused with The Corn People, that's very different.

Back when I still had a kid in the homeschool co-op I taught a unit on food—what the world eats. I tracked down the world's 10 most popular starch crops and brought samples of each in and we made small batches to taste. Most of the grains went into little tortilla-like pancakes but I brought 4 different kinds of rice. I usually have at least that many in my cupboard, more around Thanksgiving.

The biggest hit of the day? Basmati. By far. I swear half the kids went home that night and refused to eat Minute Rice ever again.

 
Basmati is probably my favorite type of rice.    I don't think I had Minute Rice until I was in college; I remember the ads on TV but my parents never bought it.  They always made some sort of 20-minute dry rice (Carolina or Goya?).  A few years ago I had a discussion with some folks who claimed that people shouldn't eat corn.  It started as a GMO debate then one of them claimed she believed that humans were never really meant to eat corn.  I told her that thousands of years of indigenous peoples of the Americas would probably beg to differ, then smoothly exited the conversation (to eat some chips and salsa).
