Ebano (“ebony” in Italian) is a new unique black rice on the market, and Cascina Oschiena is only one of six farms cultivating it. Ebano is an aromatic whole-grain variety of rice with black grains and a distinctive toasted bread aroma (as well as hints of popcorn and cocoa). Its strong color comes from anthocyanins, which are antioxidants found in the plant. It is rich in protein and minerals and highly digestible. Ebano’s health benefits, organoleptic properties, and versatility in the kitchen makes it a great choice for cooking rice. It is excellent combined with vegetables, meat, or fish – or seasoned alone with herbs and olive oil! Ebano has a short growing cycle – only 100 days – and that allows Cascina Oschiena to plant farro before it in a practice of crop rotation, which improves soil health.
