Cooperatively produced in Murcia along the Mundo and Segura River valleys, Calasparra is a premium grade of Spanish rice. Granted DOP status in 1986, Calasparra is still, to this day, the only such protected rice in the European community.
It needs 2 1/2 times as much water as standard Spanish rice, and it holds up very well so there is less danger of having soggy, overcooked rice. It is like Arborio to Italians.
In the centuries old tradition, fresh river waters are channeled through the rice fields near the town of Calasparra, and the cooler summer climate of the area results in a slower ripening grain which is harder and slower cooking. 3/5kg, 20/1kg. We also have semi-whole grain, whole grain and bomba available on preorder.
Perfect as side-dish to enhance every (spanish) meal.
