Product Review: Brown Basmati Rice

Brown Basmati Rice

I have to admit I've had this a while. Okay...months. I did a pot of it when I bought it, stuck the bag in the cupboard and forgot about it again until last week.
My family loves Basmati rice. I buy it at Sam's Club in 25-lb bags. If I do happen to run out, Taylor will mention it. "What's this rice, Mom? It doesn't have much flavor," he'll say of regular long-grain rice.
I thought maybe I'd step up the fiber by trying this brown variety. I don't remember how much it was, but I'm quite sure it was significantly pricier than the other. I've bought Lundberg stuff before and liked it. I think I've even reviewed it, but I'm too lazy to do a [rather simple] search of the blog.
Anyway, great stuff! Takes a loooonnnnng time to cook though. Like most brown rice.

I was really happy to find this brown basmati also. The kids love rice - Jessie's favorite is the old stand by Pork chops and rice with soup poured over. Real comfort food! Your nephew is 11 today! We get to celebrate and drive to Loretto for a basketball game. Woohoo!!
