There is normally a two-to-one ratio of liquid to rice, and normally rice is simmered for 20 minutes. I knew this before I tried the recipe, but decided to trust the recipe for some reason. Bad...

Yummy and super easy to make!!! I only had 1 1/2 c. of pineapple juice on hand but I added 1/4 c. of water and the pineapple flavor was still there!!! Next time I'll add a little more curry sinc...

I had great hopes for this recipe, in spite of the mixed reviews. I generally have no problem with rice, in fact I have a reputation for making perfect rice everytime. Not this time, though. ...

I was short on the juice with only about one cup, so I added a cup of water to make a two-one ration. I also upped the cooking time to about 20 minutes. The rice came out cooked to perfection....

a little too spicy for my two young kids but I thought it was great - gave me some other ideas for more rice dishes - thanks

My husband and I loved this rice! Wow! I used 1 cup juice and 1 cup water for 1 cup of Jasmine rice. I also omitted the celery salt and add dash regular salt.

Did not care for this at all.

It came out pretty dry even after adjusting the liquids to 2 cups and covering.

Although I was searching for a recipe for rice cooked in pineapple juice, this turned out not to be what I was looking for. My family did not care for this dish. I believe it was the celery salt...
