Cooking tips:

  • Do not rinse it! Rinsing can remove the bamboo, which dulls the dolor.
  • 1.5 to 1 water to rice ratio
  • Simmer 15 to 20 minutes. Just cook until the water is absorbed.
  • Steam covered for 5 minutes. This final step is important to get the right texture. Jade rice is moist and stickier than a standard white or brown rice.

We now have cassava flour!

Also called manioc or yuca, cassava flour is gluten-free and grain-free (made from cassava root), and one of the best replacement for wheat flour because of its starchy content. Our cassava is organic and produced in Brazil. Available at $4.19/lb.

You can try it in simple recipes such as waffles and pancakes, or delicious 5-min tortillas.
