Carolina Gold rice
Considered the grandfather of long grain rice in the Americas, Carolina Gold (which emanated from Africa and Indonesia) became a commercial staple grain in the coastal lands of the Carolina Territory in 1685. After the Depression Carolina Gold rice lost its prominence to new varieties and became virtually extinct. But in the 1980s, something of a Gold Rice revival began (aided by the Carolina Gold Rice Foundation, which conducts sustainable historic rice field recovery), and the rice is currently growing in popularity and value. The grain has a superior nutty flavor, floral aroma and a chewy texture, making it ideal for culinary use.
