White Rice

       The thing that  I’m doing for my Tenement Museum project is white rice. My category is foodways. The white rice is used for eating and when a bunch of people are around.The recipe came from my grandpa that's on my dad's side and that came from puerto rico. The person who told me about it is my grandpa on that's my dad's side. It is important to me because it's really good and it is a good thing that reminds me of where I came from. It connects to my culture because that  is from puerto rico and it is a way to remind me about it. One way to make it good is,make sure you wash the rice,one cup of rice,two cups of water. I like it and it's special to me and my family.
