RURAL RICE-ING. What we have here are nine “tampipis” or native suitcases made from woven pandan leaves, tied in a beautiful red bow. There were ten originally but one we have to give to our daughter to help her impress her potential mother-in-law. Inside are five of our most exclusive, elusive grains. The heirloom rice of Mt. Province—Black, Red, 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 4 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), Nilob-ong (red), Chor-chor-os (brown), and Innawi (white sushi rice). We said five grains, what is the fifth? It’s that healthy, delicious adlai grown by a single Batangas farmer.
