The real stuff goes for about $5 a pound. We usually buy ten pounds of
it a year or so, which isn't a terribly huge investment. I figure you
get about 3 cups of cooked rice from each cup of dry, so it ends up
being plenty and we eat it with abandon yet always seem to have a bit
left over when we go up to the cabin in the late summer, which is when
we buy more.

Yes, it's true - everybody in or even from Minesota has a cabin.
