Miss Luby, this rice is DEE-LICIOUS! I love the kick it gets from the cayenne. It makes ALOT, which is a good thing because you cannot stop eating it. I couldn't put my finger on right away of what it reminded me of, but now I know. The flavor is very similiar to Uncle Bens long grain and wild rice. This is a VERY soft rice....so people liking a firmer rice may what to experiment cutting back on the broth some, and it absolutely does NOT need any additional salt.
