Pre-pandemic, we started buying larger quantities of jasmine rice - the type we use most commonly...
Not only do we not run out as fast, but I find the large sack is different than the jasmine available in the smaller 5# bags - it cooks up fluffier using the same technique. My theory is that the smaller bags sit around longer while most of the sacks we've gotten lately are labeled "new crop".
Same large "new crop" sack when I was cooking for more folks. Stacked high at front of markets. We did not have 4-legged poachers so I just kept the sack in the walk-in pantry. with a bowl sitting on top to.o sort of close it since that sack material unravels.
