Wild Rice is a highly prized, nutritious natural relative of white rice harvested from an aquatic grass that grows in isolated lakes and river beds around North America. We procure wild-grown, expertly harvested Wild Rice.
Add 1 cup rice to 4 cups water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Cover and cook 45 to 50 minutes. Fluff with a fork before serving.
Storage & handling
Store in a dry, cool place.
Wild rice is a great side dish but also a terrific stuffing. The nutty, chewy texture compliments the crunchy nuts and tart cherries with sweet notes from the squash and maple syrup. This dish makes for a great main course or it can be cut up for a side.
