This type of rice needs to be kept cool. It turns rancid quickly if it get warm so you need to store
it in a cool place. You can store it in an air tight container in the fridge for up to a year. Both
brown and white rice leach nutrients into the water when cooking so save the water. Let it cook until all the water is absorbed. You should put the rice directly into the water when cooking as long as it is the domestic rice. When you are cooking rice try not to stir it as this will damage the grains. This will make the rice soft and gummy. You can try chicken and beef broths which are great cooking liquids. You can also try some herbs or a squeeze of lemon. When it is done the grains will separate easily without being dry or wet. Let it stand fifteen or twenty minutes after cooking to reduce clumping.
