One thing to know about storing whole grains is that they will develop infestations if not used quickly or stored properly. That's true for spices, whole oats, wholegrain flours, and many other dry goods that people might not use quickly. So it's best to take some care with their storage.
It absolutely needs to be stored in an airtight bag or container. No matter how clean your kitchen, over time something will find its way into rice if it isn't sealed up 100%. Stored at room temperature, uncooked plain brown rice normally only lasts for 3-6 months, depending on humidity, airtight seal, etc.
The freezer is a better place to store anything you won't use within a month or so. Personally, I divided the 15 pound into three one-gallon ziploc bags. I got as much air out as possible and put all three in the freezer. We will use it straight out of the freezer (does not need to be thawed--makes no difference to cooking).
If you don't want to store it in the freezer, at least keep it in the freezer for a week -- this will kill any tiny possible weevil eggs or similar already in the rice (which is super common in grains and spices). But ideally, the freezer is the best long-term storage option.
Several times, in different stores, I have asked and the result has been exactly the same...
"Yes, we do have brown rice, aisle 10."
"OK, could you show me because I was just there in the rice aisle."
"Sure.....(searching, searching)....Hmmm, it should be here with the rest of the rice...." Nope.
"Sorry, I guess not."
The fact that they always assume they carry it but don't tells me that they never actually eat it themselves.
I go into the same big-chain stores where I used to always buy it in bulk, but here in Kansas the same exact stores have no brown rice at all. Ditto for quinoa.
I used to take for granted that I lived in a state where people want something other than white rice, Wonder bread, hot dogs and mayonnaise; where we had a wide variety of long- and even short-grain brown rice options available to us. But here in Dorothy's country, social thinking seems to be stuck in a 1939-Wizard of Oz-time-loop, where diversity in culture and therefore food, fails miserably. I could expound on this further but realize the whole point of this was to review Nishiki brown rice and therefore I apologize -
This product rocks! If you live in Kansas, to my knowledge you have no better option!
I was a bit trepidatious due to reviews mentioning bugs, so I stored mine immediately upon receipt for 24 hours in my freezer, before transferring it to a container. I noticed my rice bag of rice had a slice in it, but wasn’t sure whether to chalk that up to how I opened the box, the packaging itself, or my cat. But I can’t deduct points due to my negligence.
If you’re used to cooking rice in an Instant Pot, throw your method and every other one on the internet out the window. The usual methods will result in wet, hard rice. Instead, cook this rice in a 1:1 ratio of water to rice under high pressure for 27 minutes, then allow the pressure to naturally release for 10 before opening your pressure cooker.
Fantastic. Sticky, but not gummy. Clumps nicely on chopsticks. Nutty and sweet and wholesome.
I’m writing this review immediately after having cracked the Instant Pot code, enjoying perfectly-cooked brown rice in a bowl of oyakodon. It’s proven to be quite the balm to my mood in this dour winter storm.
If you don’t have access to a local Asian market, five pounds of specialty rice for five dollars really can’t be beat. Take my experience with a grain of salt, read all the reviews, do your due diligence.
I personally will be reordering this, possibly even in a larger volume.
