An heirloom varietal, medium grain rice grown exclusively on Koda Farms. Complex and subtle, light nutty flavor with a slightly sweet afternote. Tender moist texture. Slightly sticky.
The cooking directions for such exquisite rice are very specific. Koda Farms recommends an electric rice cooker for best results. Washing, soaking, and draining rice in advance of cooking is traditional, although not essential. If you choose to do so, rinse rice first, and soak in bottled, purified, or filtered water (enough to cover the rice) for 30 minutes, then drain. For stovetop preparation, combine 1.5 cups rice with 2 cups bottled water in a medium saucepan, and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce to a low simmer, approximately 20 minutes till water is absorbed. Remove from heat and let rest 15 minutes. Fluff with fork and let rest again (for more detailed information, visit Koda Farms’ Preparing Your Rice web page).
Storage: Uncooked rice should be stored in a cool, dry place.
