Rice is one of those wonderful foods that, if a made a part of your food storage, with even a minimum of care can be stored for thirty years or more and still be found to be a usable food after that time. As the folks at Provident Living put it, "While there is a decline in nutritional quality and taste over time, depending on the orginal quality of food and how it was processed, packaged and stored, studies show that even after being stored long-term, the food will help sustain life in an emergency."
Its high caloric value and versatility in use help to make rice a valuable part of just about any home storage program. Use it as in a main dish, use it in a side dish, or even use it as a dessert. As these recipes which follow show, rice can be a simple-to-use, inexpensive and healthy dessert ingredient.
