Kokuho Rose Rice®
Kokuho Rose® Rice has a sweet scent and mild flavor. Developed especially to grow beautiful, oblong grains, this is a Californian creation that makes superb sushi rice.
Rinse 1 cup of Kokuho Rose Rice in several changes of cold water until water runs clear. Drain in a colander. Combine drained rice and 1 1/2 cups water in medium saucepan over high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat. Let rest covered for 15 minutes more.
Storage & handling
Store in a dry, cool place.
Koda Farms in the San Joaquin Valley of California developed Kokuho Rose® Rice, a unique variety of rice with its own unique flavor and appearance. The family-owned farm's rice breeding program developed this varietal to the microclimate and soil type of the area. Kokuho translates from Japanese to mean "Treasure of the Country."
These compact rice balls make perfect snacks, and almost serve as a Japanese equivalent of a sandwich. Here, the delicate flavor of our Kokuho Rose Rice provide a perfect palette for the assertive flavors of smoked salmon and nori.
