I’ve said it before that my husband is from South Carolina, the “Deep South” which is very different from Texas’ South. I didn’t grow up on Sweet Tea like my husband did so I don’t really have the taste for it. But when Southern Living Magazine did a special section on recipes with Sweet Tea, I knew that we would find some winners. This rice is SO good. I don’t think we’ll make rice any other way from now on!
-2 cups sweetened tea
-1 cup uncooked long-grain rice
-1/2 tsp salt
1. Bring tea to a boil in a 3 qt saucepan over medium-high heat; stir in rice and salt. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 20 minutes or until tea is absorbed and rice is tender.
