When rice is on the menu – and let’s be honest – rice is always on the menu, look for the premium US grown Supreme Jasmine. This aromatic rice elevates every dish. Cooks who know use Jasmine to make their gumbo greater and their étouffée excellent. But don’t stop there – make taco night terrific, and your stir-fry super - and yes - it will still jazz up your jambalaya. Don’t just reach for the rice that grandma cooked - make every bite Supreme with our Jasmine Rice.

Jasmine rice contains a natural ingredient that provides a fragrant aroma and taste. Jasmine is a softer, stickier and has a more desirable “gummy” white texture after cooking than our other varieties. With an aroma of popcorn and nutlike flavor this rice is an excellent choice for stir-fry, salads, stuffing, pilaf, and desserts.
Combine 1 ½ cups of water and 1 tsp. salt (optional) in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Add 1 cup of Jasmine Supreme Rice, stir, and bring back to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 20 minutes. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork. Cover, and let set for 15 minutes. Fluff again, and serve.
For larger quantities, or for firmer texture, reduce water slightly. Adjust water for texture as desired.
NOTE: If using an electric rice cooker, follow manufacturers’ directions.
