When the weather is hot, all kinds of bugs can't hold back their loneliness and begin to grow and reproduce in large numbers. What's more annoying is that there are always worms in the rice. So what should I do if there are worms in the rice? Let's take a look below.
1. Freeze. If the worms in the rice are not very serious, you can put the rice together with the pockets into the freezer of the refrigerator, and wait for 24 hours before taking it out. At this time, the worms are frozen to death and turn red and black, which is easy to pick out. And it will not affect the original taste of the rice.
2. Rice should be stored in a cool place. People often like to expose the rice to the sun, which not only fails to kill the rice worms, but is counterproductive, because after two or three days, the rice worms in the rice will increase unabated, and the rice after exposure to the sun will increase. Taste is affected by the loss of moisture. The correct way is to put the rice with insects in a cool and ventilated place, let the insects slowly crawl out, and then sieve again.
3. Wash the rice bag with Sichuan pepper. Chinese prickly ash is a natural antioxidant, not only has a special fragrance but also has the effect of repelling insects. The method of use is as follows: Put 20 to 30 peppercorns in a pot, add an appropriate amount of water, and put it on the stove to cook the fragrance of the peppercorns. Turn off the fire at the back end of the pot, put the rice pockets into the boiled peppercorns, and soak them in the water, then take them out to dry. Then pour the rice into the pocket. This can effectively prevent rice worms.
4. Mounding method. The worm rice is piled up on a hill. The rice worm likes an aerobic environment, so it will slowly climb to the peak of the mountain to breathe. At this time, it is enough to shovel away the whole "mountain peak".
