ARROZ - RIZ - RICE - REIS
Rice dishes are becoming more popular on menus, there are myriad different varieties in the stores and numerous recipes available because, as adepts of the culinary arts know well, rice “goes with everything”. It is unanimous: rice is in fashion and is making a comeback. Paella is now partnered by creamy rice, soupy rice dishes and risottos, and, it must be said, few of these dishes are cooked slowly any more, as the rice is toasted in butter to combine flavours.
The Senia and Bahía varieties have a composition that guarantees a creamy texture in the cooked grain, and complete absorption of flavors.
The Bomba variety gives grains that do not stick together after cooking, with a good consistency and complete absorption of flavors.
Seeds are sown directly, by hand or from the air. The depth of the water layer varies depending on weather conditions and crop development. Once or twice during the vegetative cycle, the fields are left dry for a few days to prevent algae formation. Centrifugal sowing machines are used, from late April to mid-May.
The rice is harvested using automatic harvesting machines from early September to early October. It is then dried in the sun or using hot air blowers. Cleaning, milling and packing are totally mechanized and take place throughout the year.
The Valencian Community has several natural wetlands (the largest being the Albufera) which have the right soil, floodability conditions and climate for rice production. On either side of the Júcar river and in the surroundings of the Albufera, soils are limey (30-50% carbonate), clayey, poor in organic matter and with a pH of 8-8.3.
The terrain is strong and not very permeable and offers ideal physical conditions for rice cultivation. The temperature, light and relative humidity of the production area are also optimal for rice cultivation, as shown in agronomic studies.
