Originating in Asia, rice is the most common staple crop. Arborio rice is a round white rice, renowned for its ability to absorb large quantities of liquid without becoming mushy.
Excellent for risotto dishes, this large-grained short rice readily absorbs liquids & flavours.
Instructions for Use:
In a heavy saucepan combine 1 cup of rice with 1 1/2 cups of water or stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, stirring constantly until liquid is absorbed. Add an additional 3 cups a little at a time, cooking and stirring until liquid is absorbed each time. Cooking time is approximately 20 minutes. Use in making risotto, or add finely chopped mint and diced cucumber and serve chilled as a salad.
Keep in a cool, dry place. Once opened, store in a airtight container.
