New Product: Jade Green Pearl Rice

Try our new Jade Green Pearl Rice, made from organic short-grain rice (a.k.a sushi rice, grown in China) infused with bamboo concentrate. This rice has a moist texture, a delicate taste, and a great light green color from the chlorophyll in the bamboo!

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.
