The wild marshlands of France's Provence, Le Camargue, are home to the hearty grain called Riz Rouge (pronounced "ree rou-gh"). This beautiful rice has only been known in culinary circles since 1988, when it was discovered in Provence during the blustery winter months. This healthful, whole grain rice has a luscious flavor, firm texture, and a sweet finish on the palate.
Please note: When cooking, use 1 cup of rice to 3.5 cups liquid, rather than the usual 1: 2 ratio for white rice. Simmer 25 minutes.
