Heirloom Kermes Rice

Beijing's treasure.

Kermes is an heirloom grain that originated in the Hibei province in China, which loops around Beijing. Like many old-fashioned grains, it fell out of favor in the mid 20th century because it was much lower yielding than modern varieties. Lucky for us, a few years ago a handful of farmers started growing it again. 
 
Rusty red in color, it has an earthy, rich flavor that almost reminds me of oatmeal. It’s so full flavored that it’s good for eating plain, but it would also be great in rice bowls or as a special side dish.
