Saw this beautiful little rice the other day and decided to try it. It's wonderful. Aromatic and cooks just as well as any other rice, and tastes delicious. Not that I have gone over board with it but to say I like it would be an understatement. For some reason it reminded me of the short grain rice my mother would always make growing up. I bought the Goya brand, basically because I liked the way the grains looked, so clean and shiny. When I made it the fragrance filled the house. And it brought an air of nostalgia.
The next day, I took some to school to have for lunch and when a teacher who was just strolling by, stopped in my classroom and said "there is Jasmine rice here." I had forgotten it was the jasmine rice, and she detected it from the hallway. Don't get me wrong, the smell is subtle; some people just have a better sense of smell than others. She says, that now that she has tried it, she won't cook any other type. I don't know that I would go so far, but... it might happen.
Next I am going to try the Mahatma brand and see if it is just as good. You cook it just as you would any other rice. Puerto Ricans like their rice a bit more fluffy and not as mushy as American style rice, so we put less water. Other than that it is a matter of preference however you cook it. I encourage you to try it, you just might like it.
