Rice Water For Tummy Problems

Making rice water is really easy and uses ingredients right out of your food storage. Rice water is useful when somebody is having stomach issues like vomiting or diarrhea. It is calming to the upset stomach, amazingly bland, starchy, and gets some nutrients in your patient.

To make rice water you need rice and water, that’s all.  Put two tablespoons of rice in a pot with 1 cup of water.  Don’t add salt.  You don’t get a cup of rice water from a cup of water because some of it soaks into the rice.   I double or triple this and refrigerate the leftovers.

Bring the water to a boil and boil until the rice is tender. Strain the rice out and the milky liquid that is left is rice water.  You can eat the rice, add it to a soup or casserole, or feed it to the chickens if you want.  If you boil too long, your rice water will be pretty thick.  You can just thin it back down with some regular water if it’s thicker than you’d like.

Let the rice water cool before serving it to your patient. You can drink it warm or cold.  Great for queasy tummies young or old.
