Oven Baked Brown Rice (adapted from Cooks Illustrated)

Ingredients:
3 cups Delta Blues Long Grain Brown Rice
4 2/3 cups water
4 teaspoons butter or vegetable oil
1 1/4 teaspoon salt
2 Turkish bay leaves
Additional butter to taste

Directions:
Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 375 degrees. Rinse rice, shake off excess water, and spread rice and bay leaves in 9 X 13 inch baking dish. Bring water and butter to a boil, covered, in medium saucepan. Once boiling, immediately stir in salt and pour water over rice in baking dish. Cover baking dish tightly with 2 layers of aluminum foil. Transfer baking dish to oven, and bake rice until tender, about 1 hour. Remove baking dish from oven and uncover. Fluff rice with fork, add additional butter (if desired), then cover dish with kitchen towel and let rice stand for 5 minutes. Uncover and let rice stand for 5 minutes longer. Serve and enjoy.
