Mountain Violet Sticky Rice (1 lb.)
With its deep violet color, Mountain Violet rice is a rare, heirloom variety that is the most highly prized sticky rice grown in the remote terraces of northern Luzon, Philippines. It is revered throughout the region for its cultural and culinary importance. The Ominio variety has been designated to the Slow Food Foundation’s international “Ark of Taste”. Inclusion in the Ark means that the rice has met the foundation’s standards for taste quality, environmental sustainability and respect for the cultural identity of the producers. This medium grain rice finishes with a plump, sticky texture and a pleasantly nutty taste. Mountain Violet makes desserts that are exceptionally flavorful and visually stunning, and the rice can also be used in salads, soups, or to add color and texture to any dish. This rice will bring ‘oohs and ahhhs’….it’s that special.
