Camargue (French Red) Rice is grown in the eponymous region of Southeastern France, featuring a beautiful red russet color and wonderful nutty flavor. We source premier short grain, red rice with its hull intact for the world-class texture, flavor and color of our Camargue (French Red) Rice.
Combine 1 cup rice and 1-1/2 cups water in pot with lid. Bring to boil over high heat. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until grains are tender, about 30 to 40 minutes.
Storage & handling
Store in a dry, cool place.
The Camargue region of France is located along the Mediterranean coast between Marseille and Montpelier. Rice has been grown in this wetland region since the 16th century. This region is designated a protected geographic appellation to ensure lesser quality food ingredients from other regions cannot be sold under the renowned Camargue name.
The region is also known for its legally protected nature reserves where eagles, hawks and other birds fly free.
This striking, brick-red rice pilaf perks up any plate with its lovely color and nutty flavor, but is an especially complimentary side to roasted pork and chicken.
