The grandfather of long-grain rice in the Americas, Carolina Gold is a delicate, non-aromatic rice with chameleon starch properties that allow it to produce fluffy, individual grains; creamy risotto; or sticky Asian-style rice, depending on how it is cooked. Gluten Free.
Directions: In a medium saucepan with a lid, add 1 cup of rice and 1 1/4 cups water. Soak for 1 hour, then drain. Add another 1 1/4 cups cold water and a generous pinch of sea salt, and bring to a boil, uncovered. Turn heat down to simmer, cover with lid, and cook for 8 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit, covered, for 5 minutes. Uncover and fluff with a fork. Serve immediately, or cool if using for a salad or stuffing.
Refrigerate Upon Receipt. Unopened packages stored at room temperature remain fresh for 2-3 weeks.
Tips and uses: Carolina Gold rice can be used in many different ways. Soak and add some rice wine vinegar for sushi rice texture. Toast in a pan after browning meat and use as risotto. Or cook with butter and stock like basmati rice.
