Black rice "venere" - 500g

Terre Bormane Italy

Black Venere rice is different from common rice for its aroma and taste, but also for its characteristic high iron content and the presence of anthocyanins (hence its dark colour) that make it very healthy.

The grain is ebony black and the colour is totally natural. Like other varieties of oriental rice it is perfumed and its distinct aroma of freshly baked bread makes it a perfect accompaniment to both seafood and meat. Like all whole grains, it requires a fairly long cooking time (about 40 minutes) that can be reduced by previously soaking it in water or using a pressure cooker.

This rice is grown in Piedmont, Italy, though it has been used in China for centuries and was enjoyed only by the aristocracy at the court of the Emperor.
