FRENCH RED (CAMARGUE) RICE - Kosher/Gluten Free

FRENRED-10

Description:

French Red Rice is from Camargue, a southeastern region in France. Camargue Rice has been granted a Protected Geographic Indication by the European Community, recognizing its uniqueness and its connection to the region. This insures that this region will continue to produce high quality food ingredients. The natural salt content in the region’s soil makes growing most crops a challenge but because rice can handle higher levels of salinity it proves to be well suited to the area. “Le Riz Rouge” as the rice is called, is similar to brown rice with its longish grain and nutty flavor but its texture is firmer and less sticky. French Red Rice has a beautiful color reminiscent of the area it is grown in.

Ingredient Statement:

Brown Rice.

Camargue Rice with the addition of braised leeks, toasted almonds, sweet red peppers, and fresh herbs compliments a vast array of wild game. It works great as an accompaniment to poultry and meats or served cold in colorful and tasty rice salads. Use anywhere an earthy, nutty flavor is desired. Excellent in pilafs. Cook Camargue Rice in your favorite stock and stir in almonds, chopped apricots and cherries and serve with fish or white meat. Stir pesto into freshly cooked Camargue Red Rice and serve as a side dish to any meat or vegetables. Try Camargue Rice as a dessert in coconut milk, with brown sugar and cinnamon and serve with baked fruits.

Recommended Preparation Instructions:

Place 1 cup of rice and 1½ cups of water in sauce pan, cover with tight fitting lid. Bring to boil, then lower and simmer for 30-40 minutes until grains are tender. Let stand 5 minutes.

One cup dry yields 3 cups cooked.
