Hailing from Louisiana, this aromatic rice is a hybrid (its parents have no relation to either wild rice or pecans) with a rich, nutty flavor and a cooked fragrance akin to popcorn. |
Rinse one cup of rice cover with 3 cups of water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat simmer, covered 45-50 minutes. Drain off excess water. The rice will burst when tender. Six ounces dry yields 3 cups cooked.
