More for my own notes than anything.

This is an unsuccessful version of the fried rice recipe:

2 tbsp peanut oil
2 cups cold cooked rice
8 oz can chunked pineapple, drained
8 oz can water chestnuts, drained
8 oz can bamboo shoots, drained
1/2 cup edamame, shelled
2 tbsp sesame oil

The process is right (toss rice in peanut oil, add veggies, and sesame oil), but I didn't cook it long enough (only 15 minutes, and it should have been more) and the proportions are off. Need to halve the sesame oil (can't taste anything else), and make sure to use sliced water chestnuts rather than whole ones (that was a buying error, and I didn't feel like chopping them up). The bamboo shoots, etc. didn't really cook through, which I think would be fixed by extending the cooking time. And I don't like this brand of water chestnuts; they have a metallic taste to them. (Could also have doubled the amount of edamame, but they didn't cook through, either.)

Ah, well, that's why it's an experiment. I'm hoping that later microwaving of the leftover portions will help it cook through more. We'll see.
