50 SHADES OF GRAIN. What we have here are 20 bayongs or native bags made from woven pandan leaves, handles tied together by a custom-made bow. Inside are four of our most exclusive, elusive grains. The heirloom rice of Mt. Province—Black, Brown and White (sushi) rice—they only produce 100 kilos of these varieties per season, in farms that closely guard stock seed that has been handed down, father to son, for generations. It was difficult even for us to get these 3 heirloom rice together, we did have to cajole a little. The names by which these rice are called locally sound as musical as they are enigmatic—Balatinaw (black), Lad-okan (brown), and Innawi (white, sushi rice). That’s three highland grains, this means there are two grains coming from the lowlands—here they are. Gray rice from a single Batangas farmer, tastes similar to sushi rice except for the color and of course that healthy, delicious adlai grown by a single Batangas farmer.
