Rare rice by rare farming methodThe phantom variety "Sasashigure" is not distributed to general retailers because there are very few farmers.
The rare variety was raised on the rice factory farm. Of course, it is pesticide-free and fertilizer-free natural cultivation.
Sasashigure is the parent of Sasanishiki.
In terms of taste, it is said that even Sasanishiki, which is as popular as Koshihikari, which has a long-established reputation, cannot surpass the umami of Sasashigure.
Sasashigure is a top-class rice with a good scent when cooked and sweetness increases when cooled.
Please enjoy a special taste that cannot be tasted with ordinary rice.
I love the rice and so happy to have found this shop. I will be getting all my rice from here going forward. Thank you!!
Expensive but worth a try, like the natural farming method used to produce this varietal. You can definitely taste the freshness, the rice has a nice chew at the same time feels quite light, but if you prefer softer rice this might not be for you. Highly recommend getting it 70% milled, tastes just like white rice, yet the most nutritious germ is preserved.
