Did you know?

Did you know non-organic rice crops are usually sprayed with pesticides and insecticides? While intended only for the pests, these chemicals can cause long-term health problems for us, including hormone disruption, lung irritation, and neurological disorders.

Geography.

Sourced in Italy and packed in Australia.

Hot tip.

You can cook Arborio rice as you would regular rice: In a medium, heavy-bottomed pot or saucepan, bring 2 cups of salted water to boil over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil or butter, return to a boil, and then add 1 cup of Arborio rice. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer until liquid is fully absorbed and rice is al dente, about 20 minutes.
