We’ve purchased this 50 pound sack of rice a couple times. I enjoy all different types of rice so I am not particular when it comes to brand & type. This Costco calrose rice is a medium grain white rice. It is a premium sushi rice that is grown in the USA. We go through phases of eating it. Some weeks we’ll eat it 4-5 times & others we may not touch it for a month. One of my favorite meals is to make a pot of fresh rice, BBQ any type of meat (fish, chicken, beef, etc) & throw that on top with some vegetables. It’s easy, quick, cheap & healthy. During the beginning COVID-19 (coronavirus), you couldn’t find rice on the shelves. They were pretty much sold out everywhere as people were hoarding. Since then I have seen just about everything stock on shelves regularly, except maybe wipes. Anyways, it’s always good to have a bag of this around. It stores well & can be ready in less than 30 minutes. Here’s a few more details about this Costco calrose rice…….

Make sure to read the directions on the back. I was so used to the last bag I purchased I just cooked it with 2 cups water to 1 cup rice. I ended up making rice soup and throwing it out. This is only 1 1/4 cups water to 1 cup rice when using the saucepan. When using an electric rice cooker you are going to want to use 2 cups water to 1 1/2 cup rice. That bring me to my next point. Do yourself a favor and get an Instant Pot or a good electric rice cooker. They are so easy to use & make cooking a breeze. Make sure to check out these REALLY NICE rice cookers as well as the Instant Pot…..
