Did You Know...
Wild rice is actually a long-grain marsh grass grown in the northern Great Lakes area. With its nutty flavor and chewy texture, wild rice brings a touch of luxury to any meal.
Success
For best results, wash wild rice before using it. Simply place in a medium bowl, and fill with cold water. Give the rice a couple of stirs and set it aside for a few minutes. Any debris will float to the surface, and you can pour off the water.
