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 4 cups of water. Soak for 30 minutes, then rinse and strain. Add another 4 cups of water with a pinch of salt and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 25 minutes on low, or until all the water has absorbed and the rice is soft and fluffy.
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.
