ORZO, MAIZE

MAIZEORZO-5

Description:

Orzo is made with Durham Wheat Flour (Semolina) which makes it a pasta. The Orzo is 1/3" long and rice shaped. The toothy, firm texture and subtle flavors lend its use to many different applications. Orzo maintains its shape and color dulls slightly when cooked. Traditionally, Orzo has been used with rice to make Pilaf. Orzo like many pastas, has become a flexible and versatile ingredient. In Italian, Orzo means "Barley." Since pasta doesn't contain any "Barley" the name is probably in reference to the shape of Orzo. Pasta has been a main stay ingredient in Italian cooking for centuries. Orzo is just one of the many shapes developed for specific uses.

Ingredient Statement:

 

Durum Semolina Flour (milled wheat, niacin, iron, thiamine Mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), Yellow Corn Flour, Wheat Protein Isolate, Turmeric Spice for color, Salt, Safflower.

 (Contains Wheat, Gluten)

Orzo can be combined with any number of herbs, vegetables and seafood for an unusual and striking plate presentation. Use in Pilaf's, salads, sauces or simply dressed with a light pesto.

Recommended Preparation Instructions:

Add 1 cup of Orzo to 2 cups of rapidly boiling water or stock. Return to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 12 minutes until tender, yet still al dente. Or, add uncooked Orzo to soup or stew during last 12 minutes of cooking.

One cup dry yields 3 cups cooked.
