    Details

    "Black 'Nerone' Rice "

     

    Black Rice originates in China but Black Nerone Rice is cultivated today in specific areas of the Po Valley in Piemonte, Italy.

     

    A speciality wholemeal rice with a natural black grain, Black Nerone Rice has an intense fragrance and is rich in vitamins and minerals.  It cooks in 40mins.

     

    Try it:

    We think it is particularly good with fish, shellfish, rice salads and side dishes.

     

    We have a lovely Italian rice salad which looks really attractive with the black rice.  Click here to see a PDF of the recipe.

     

    Note: Cool it quickly under cold running water if using it cold.

      

    History:

    According to legend Chinese farmers only cultivated it for the emperor and his court, where it was appreciated for its nutritional and aphrodisiac properties (and was therefore known as the 'forbidden rice'!)
