Venere rice is a medium-grain rice with a dark black color and a nutty, sweet taste. The Venere rice has to be boiled in abundant salted water the same way one would boil pasta, and for 30 minutes. Drain, season with olive oil, salt and a pinch of pepper, and serve as a side-dish or use the cooked rice in your favorite rice dish preparation. Mix the rice into a fish-soup, served on a bowl with a shellfish ragu’, or mixed with sliced sautéed vegetables. Once cooled, the rice can be stored in the refrigerator or served in any type of salad or rice dish at a later date.
