Organic Chinese Black Rice
Organic Chinese Black Rice, also known as the Emperor's Rice, is glutinous medium-grain rice that's slightly sticky with a silky dark indigo color when cooked. We source certified organic, all-natural rice with a rich, sweet flavor for our Organic Chinese Black Rice.
- Rich, sweet flavor
- Black grains fluff to shiny, dark indigo when cooked
- Slightly sticky cooked texture
Parboiled Organic Chinese Black Rice can be used for virtually anything regular white rice can be used for, both savory and sweet, for more eye-catching color and complimenting textures.
Bring 1 cup rice and 1 3/4 cups water to boil in a pot over high heat. Cover, turn heat to low, and simmer until tender, about 25 minutes. Separate grains with a fork before serving.
Storage & handling
Store in a dry, cool place.
Congee is a savory rice porridge that is a breakfast staple in China. Served with all manner of toppings and condiments, from cooked chicken or hard-boiled eggs to bamboo shoots, mushrooms and pickled vegetables. Either short- or long-grain rice can be used in congee, but we love the striking appearance and mildly sweet, nutty flavor of congee made from Chinese Black Rice.
