Blend the rice up until it is a dusty, very fine texture. WARNING: a food processor did not work well for this. I used my coffee grinder. A blender or a Magic Bullet would work as well. I ended up doing about 3 cups worth and just saved it in an air tight container.

To make the rice cereal, bring 1 cup of water to a boil. Add 1/4 cup of your blended up rice. Stir once and reduce heat. Cover and let simmer for about 8-10 minutes stirring occasionally.

After rice cereal has cooled,store in an air tight container in the fridge. It should be good to use for 3-4 days.

If your baby doesn’t like the taste at first, mix it in with a fruit that he or she likes. They’ll scarf it right down without even knowing about the healthiness they just consumed 🙂
