_______________ FEATURED INGREDIENT _____________


This is our second newsletter featuring sticky rice, since it is becoming so popular in the West. What seems to befuddle Westerners is how is it cooked? You'll be happy to discover that it is simple to prepare!

In Thailand there are 2 types of sticky/glutinous rice: long grain white and black.

The white type is a daily staple for Northeast Thailand. Sweetened with coconut milk and palm sugar, the entire country enjoys it served with ripe mango or even strawberries. (see recipe link below)

Black sticky rice is mainly eaten as a sweet dish. (see recipe link below) If you visit Thailand, look for a new product from Dairy Bell Co. - black sticky rice ice cream bars!

Black sticky rice can also be mixed with white sticky rice for a beautifully colored savory side dish. During cooking the color from the bran leaches out and stains the interior white grain so that the cooked rice becomes dark purple.
Both types are steamed in a special rice cooker (see our sale below!). You cannot cook these types of rice in an electrice rice cooker!
