Eating Raw Rice
I found an apartment, not Japanese style, that I’ve been moving into on this hot day.
Before I had even found an apartment, I went to Costco. Costco here has California Heritage Red Rice, amongst a lot of other kinds of rice. I decided to buy some in anticipation of having a kitchen in my new apartment.
As it turns out, it is very rare in Taiwan for studio apartments to have kitchens. My apartment has a fridge, but no food preparation area. A TV, which I couldn’t convince the landlord to get rid of, sits atop the fridge.
Rather than having to return the rice to Costco, I wondered – is it possible to eat rice raw?
Indeed, it seems possible. Given the cooking time for red rice, I am betting this rice will need to soak for a long time! Anything I prepare will have to be uncooked, since I don’t have cooking facilities nor any space to add cooking facilities to my apartment.
