Our family doesn’t buy any other rice now and we eat rice so much I love the option to buy in bulk. Locally grown and family owned is the best place to support and it’s great quality
This is such a better choice than pasta for added VALUE to a meal . After all it IS about health well-being
Since my rice arrived I've been enjoying it very much. Everything is as advertised and the flavor and texture are perfect.
I spent $15 to try out a 2 lb. bag of brown rice. What was shipped to me was a 2lb. bag of white rice, which I don't eat. I sent two email messages to their customer service, but never received a response to either. Then, a box arrives with 10 lbs. of white rice and a hand-written note apologizing for the error. So, I spent $15 for 12 lbs. of white rice that I cannot use. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Order processing and delivery was prompt and efficient. I'm a fan of this rice -- both white and brown. Very tasty, and Cahokia rice seems to be very forgiving -- it's hard to make a mistake cooking it.
Recently I opened the 25 pound bag of Cahokia brown rice and cooked some for the first time. Turned out wonderful. Question: Has the rice been partially milled to remove some of the bran? Or just naturally has a very light color? I was surprised and delighted at the nearly white color and delicate flavor. My husband noticed the pleasing aroma as it was cooking (I lost my sense of smell years ago. I'm 74).
Perhaps my Bain-Marie method of cooking rice helped create extra good results. No sticky pot to wash. I like it better than a rice cooker appliance. On the stove top I create a water bath/steam bath. In a large pot I put about 1/2 inch to one inch water (I use distilled) and a wavy metal disc sometimes called "no boil over" or other heat-proof disc such as canning jar lid or ring, in the bottom center. Then I put a medium size (7 or 8 cups) heat-proof glass bowl on the disc. In the bowl I put 1 and 1/2 cups rice and 2 and 1/4 cups (or a little more) tap water. Cover the big pot (not the bowl!) with a proper lid that will trap the steam over/around the bowl. Bring big pot to boil to create steam then turn down heat somewhat to keep a gentle steam going. Cooking time is about the same as recommended on the Cahokia bag or a little more time if you want the grains to puff open. Don't let the pot boil dry but if it does the rice won't burn or get stuck hard and crusty like in a pan.
After serving, for the remaining rice, I have a lid that exactly fits the bowl. Into the fridge it goes. No sticky pot or appliance container to wash. There are "set it and forget it" automatic appliances but I keep going back to the steam bath.
very tasty and love the extra protein. Cooked it with the turkey soup broth.(1/2 cup with a cup of broth) a little not quite done added more soup and let evaporate
and it was like fried rice with turkey and veggies. My son also enjoyed it..
I’ve been a return customer because Cahokia just has a richer flavor rice. The family at Cahokia have been friendly and helpful at every communication. I’m so glad to have come across the rice booth at the Made in Illinois fair years ago!
Rice is great. Only issue I have is that several of the bags had split open, spilling rice out of packages and in shipping box.
As mentioned previously I am very pleased with your brown rice. Great texture and taste. Also appreciate your timely shipping and friendly professional service.I like that you are a small farming business. Blessings
Honestly I don't find this rice to be anything unique in regards to flavor or texture. The protein is an obvious bonus and being able to support a small business is also a plus.
I think I reviewed the brown rice first already, since I used it first. I love both, Quality, aroma, taste can't be beat. My grandparents lived in Cairo, I am familiar with the area. Thanks for bringing back a Native American product.
Best rice ever, hands down.
You just can't go wrong with this rice for taste, nutrition, health, and price
Perfectly yummy healthy rice from Southern Illinois! Also, so great to support family businesses!!! 5 stars!
We buy Cahokia high protein brown rice in the 25 lb bag. The flavor and texture are superb when prepared in a rice cooker. Free shipping is an added plus 😊
After using the brown rice for the last few months, I found it cooks just fine in my rice cooker using the brown rice mode. I didn't have to alter the amount of water that is required. Customer service is 5 stars and my order arrived promptly. The only thing I
would like is to be able to buy the rice in 10 lb. bags. It is more cost effective to buy a 25 lb. bag instead of 2 lb. bags, but it will take me a while to use it up. I decided to try portioning it out using my Food Saver bags and store them in my freezer and see how that goes. This low glycemic rice fits the bill. I even take some in a small container to subsitute it for restaurant rice when I eat out.
