Quicker "Jok" for when you need it asap!

My wife is Korean-American and when she was a kid her mom made her this when she didn't feel well. I haven't tried the recipe in Heather's book yet, but it sounds good though time consuming. This is good when you don't feel well and need to eat something comforting right away. In korean it is pronounced something like "Jook" - rhymes more or less with book. Simply place about a cup of cooked white rice, sushi rice works well, in a saucepan and cover with about 3 times the amount of water. Bring to a boil and then simmer on low heat until it thickens stirring occasionally. If it boils down too quickly just add more water and continue to cook until it has softened and become a porridge like consistancy. She eats it with a mixture of soy sauce, sesame oil and sesame seeds drizzled on top, though I tend to have it with just a little soy sauce or tamari. Unfortunately I'm not feeling so hot today, and am about to make some Jook so I thought of posting it to you all. Dan
