Recipe by Rita~
I found this on request at a Lundburg sight! Black Japonica A field blend of short grain black rice and medium grain mahogany rice. Provides interesting taste appeal with its nutty mushroom-like muskiness coupled with an exotic, subtle sweet spiciness. Desirable in dishes requiring cohesiveness of grain such as stir fry, stuffing, side dishes, casseroles. I've added dried cranberries to the recipe and stuffed it into pork chops!
