Virgen de la Esperanza Calasparra Rice (Paella Rice) - 2.2 lb / 1 Kg
You don't want mushy rice in your Paella! Calasparra Rice absorbs a lot of liquid and flavors while keeping the texture and consistency of a Paella Rice.
Paella shouldn't look like Risotto. Cooked Spanish rice should be dry with separated and flavorful grains. This is why special short and rounded rice must be used in paellas.
Calasparra Rice absorbs great quantities of liquid and stays firm, keeping the texture needed for an al dente Paella. It is also great to get the so desired Socarrat — a signature crust formed by the crunchy rice cooked at the bottom of the pan.
Calasparra is widely known as one of the best's regions in Spain to grow rice, and Virgen de la Esperanza is the first rice brand in the world to get the DOP (Protected Designation of Origin) status, certifying that the product was locally grown and packaged with traditional methods of the region.
