This organic Carolina Gold "brown" rice from Harvest Grain Mills is a wonderful staple to add to anyone's home kitchen. The rice kernel is partially de-branned and polished, leaving the rice visually appealing, while offering all the nutritional benefits of brown rice. The remaining bran layer provides additional complexity, in regards to flavor and texture.

Carolina Gold Rice was the basis of the colonial and antebellum economy of Carolina and Georgia. Considered the grandfather of long-grain rice in the Americas, Carolina Gold (which emanated from Africa and Indonesia) became a commercial staple grain in the coastal lands of Charles Towne in the Carolina Territory in 1685.
Possessing superior flavor, aroma, texture and cooking qualities (and a beautiful golden hue in the fields), Carolina Gold rice brought fortunes to those who produced it and created an influential culture and cuisine in the city of Charleston. By the late 18th century, the wealth associated with its export success and the culture of diverse ethnicity required to produce Carolina Gold Rice defined the Carolina Rice Kitchen, North America’s first complete and distinct regional creole cuisine.
