More about Organico Carnaroli Rice (Risotto)

The Carnaroli rice grain is known as the 'king of risotti'. Carnaroli has the highest content of amylase amongst different rice varieties which makes the grain more compact, giving a good absorption with little loss of starch. This means the rice absorbs the flavour of the ingredients and liquids and maintains a good hard texture as it is cooked and stirred. The Organico speciality rice range is grown and packed in Bianze in the heart of the century-old rice fields of the Northern Po valley. Their partners, the Picco family have been cultivating rice there since 1878. They are dedicated to the environmental stewardship of the land and to preserving the culture and cultivation of rice.
Together with other local families they have formed a co-operative to both pack and develop find quality Italian rice. they grow a wide range of typical and newer varieties on their land. The rice is husked through a stone milling process that is more careful or gentle and therefore helps preserve the nutritional and taste qualities of the grain.

Other Information

Risottos are not difficult to make. The main thing to remember is do not boil the rice separately.
You need a large frying pan in which you start a mixed shallow fry of onions and garlic with your chosen vegetables - peppers, carrots, leeks, etc.
Fill a jug with bouillon or water.
Add the uncooked rice to the pan and stir.
Slowly add the liquid from the jug, letting the rice expand and absorb the liquid until it is taste-ready.
