  • Single origin organic rice grown, picked, milled and packaged on a family farm in Murrumbidgee Valley, New South Wales.

    Koshihikari rice is a Japanese style of short grain sticky rice. It is perfect served as that ubiquitous bowl of rice with any Japanese meal, makes great onigiri rice balls, makes great healthy sushi and its stickiness is perfect for this, as well as a perfect fit for curries, stews etc. It works very nicely in healthy risotto as well, as it cooks much more plumply and retains that stickiness you wan tin a risotto much more than long or medium grain brown rice. 

    Rinse in cold water before cooking.

    From the farmer:

    • Koshihikari semi-white rice has a unique and delicious flavour. It is a Japanese style sticky, short grain rice that is suitable for sushi, risotto, paella and rice desserts. It can also be used as an accompaniment for stews and stir fries.
    • It also has a lower GI than most other rices including arborio. Our gentle milling technique allows us to leave some of the bran on the grain thus retaining a lot of the goodness and flavour.
    • This years koshihikari has a some broken grains. It still tastes great but may need a shorter cooking time and less water.
    • Rinse in cold water before cooking and use 2 cups of water to 1 cup of rice if using the absorption method or a rice cooker. Use less water if you don't want it to be so sticky. Cooks in 12-14 minutes.
