The black rice is well priced for a very fine product. You have to boil it for a long time (around 30 minutes) in order to break the outer skin. The effort returns a very tasty rice which makes eating the usual white rice seem to be a waste of time. The only small fault is that it is just slightly soggy, but only slightly and this comment should NOT put you off from buying what is GREAT high value-to-price ratio product.

This is a hard to find product. I was quite pleased with cost and shipping from Barry Farms. I have recommended this site to many friends.

Never had black rice before. Heard about the health benefits (higher anthocyanin antioxidants than found in blueberries) and decided to try it. Nutty taste, delicious and easy to make. Turns the water purple when cooked. Shipment arrived in great condition. Initially ordered two/one pound bags and liked it so much I ordered 10 one pound bags which arrived yesterday.

Package arrived quickly! Rice was very tasty an a color somewhere between dark purple and black. Interesting color! Was excellent with the salmon dish I was making. I did use a little chicken stock when cooking the rice and it was perfect. We would definitely buy it again!

This rice is a very different taste profile than any I have had before. It has a rich underlying tone of sweetness that comes through a nice nutty overall flavor with a bit of a chew in texture. Rinse it thoroughly before cooking, though. It stained up one of my pans.

This rice was better than I anticipated. I have never had rice that tasted this good. I did not add salt as recomended by a lot of rice recipes for this rice and it was still great. I highly recomend it.
D&J Asian Market is an excellent seller that ships products very quickly.

I had read about black rice and couldn't find it. Looked it up on Amazon and there it was! It has a delicious nutty flavor and I love it. Keep some in the fridge to snack on. It's not black, by the way, it's purple!
