ISO: Non-Glutinous Black "Forbidden" Rice
Last summer, I was able to buy sprouted black non-glutinous rice at T&T. The brand was Green Mills. I haven't been able to find any non-glutinous black rice (sprouted or regular) ever since. T&T (and other Asian grocers which I've visited) carry only the glutinous, sticky kind. The labels on the shelves has indicated "Temporarily out of stock" for more than 6 months now. I wrote an email to T&T asking if they plan to restock the Green Mills products but have received no reply.
Hounds, you haven't failed me yet with my food quests. Please tell me if you know where I can get the non-glutinous variety of Chinese Black Rice. Although the Green Mills sprouted kind would be ideal, I'll be happy with non-sprouted.
Thanks in advance!
It's very pricey at Rube's. Just as an FYI before you get sticker shock. Probably a lot more than you're used to paying at T&T. I've eyed it before, but resisted the temptation due to price. I once made paella using a rice I got from Rube's for about $10 for a tiny bag to feed 2. A bit more than I would like to pay, but they have a fantastic selection. It's the only place I know that sells forbidden rice unfortunately.
