About 35 thousand tons of Yamada-Nishiki rice has been harvested in 2019 throughout the Japan.
Due to Covid-19, the demand for thissake rice might greatly be reduced,s omewhere around 18 thousand tons.
Usually we would ask for support by drinking sake, but this time we would like everyone to support directly the farmers by eating Yamada-Nishiki rice.
This 450g bag represents about 1㎡ of rice field, from 15 to 20 rice plants.
Please give us a hand.
Asahi Shuzo organized the "Beyond the Best Yamadanishiki Project" in 2019. The company held a contest to determine the best quality Yamada Nishiki in Japan to revitalize Japanese agriculture, and the first-place rice was purchased at a high price of 25 million yen for 50 bales of rice.
In addition, last month, the company began selling the Ebivege x Dassai set, which includes Dassai and vegetables from farmers in Tochigi Prefecture. The company is working to support growers who are in a difficult situation due to a decline in demand for food service and to encourage them to come back to Japan.
If you would use the same amount of water like any other rice, it would become too soft.
So we recommend to use a smaller amount of water, or use it like a risotto rice.
We also recommend pouring about 40ml of Dassai, to give the rice some fragrance.
