Long Term Storage for Medium Grain Brown Rice
I am new to this forum and would appreciate any help you can provide about long term storage of brown rice.
Medium grain brown rice is no longer available at my local grocery stores and it is my favorite rice because it adds a nutty flavor to some dishes that is better than using long grain brown rice. I finally was able to order it from Amazon.com. I got 6 two pound bags of rice and need to store five of them.
Unfortunately, when I was able to just buy this kind of rice at the grocery story, I found it tends to attract moths, so storing it in the cupboard doesn't sound like a great idea.
Some cooking sites say to freeze it cooked .. that's a lot of cooking for storage. Other sites say to freeze the rice, but they do not say whether I should freeze it in it's original package in and then in a freezer bag or open the package and just store it in a freezer bag.
Can anyone tell me the best way to store the rice long term?
