Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    No jerk seasoning on hand? Make your own by mixing 1/4 teaspoon each of ground allspice, dried thyme leaves and salt, plus 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne).
  • tip 2
    Jasmine rice is an aromatic rice from Thailand that has a flavor and fragrance comparable to basmati rice from India. Aromatic rices contain a natural ingredient that is responsible for their nutty or perfumy aroma and taste.
