Italian Arborio

Imported from Italy, this rice grows in the fertile Po river valley in northern Italy. This rice is ideally suited for an authentic, wonderfully creamy risotto or may be enjoyed by itself with just some butter and Parmesan cheese. It cooks up with a creamy texture and should be served "al dente" or with the center of the grains still firm to the bite.

Cooking Directions - On the Stove

In a saucepan, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Add 1 tablespoon tub margarine and 1 teaspoon salt per cup of uncooked rice, if desired. Stir in 1 cup rice. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes or until all water is absorbed.

Cooking Directions - In the Microwave

In a 2 quart microwave safe dish combine 2 cups water and 1 cup rice. Add 1 tablespoon tub margarine and 1 teaspoon salt per cup of uncooked rice, if desired. Cover and microwave on HIGH for 5 minutes. Reduce setting to 50% power, microwave for 15 minutes. **It is recommended that only 1 cup rice be prepared in the microwave at a time. Microwave ovens vary. Cooking times are approximate.

Cooking Directions and Other Serving Suggestions

For drier rice, use ¼ cup less water. Or, for moister rice, use ¼ cup more water.
