How "wild" is your wild rice?
Wild Rice is a unique North American grain. Technically not a rice at all, but a wild grass, the black edible kernel wild rice (Zizania aquatica) is North America's original grain crop. Canadian Lake Wild Rice is different than most other so-called "wild" rice (often referred to as "paddy" rice), which is actually produced commercially using conventional cultivation techniques.
Wild Rice is a very nutritious grain, higher in protein and fiber than most other rices and is an excellent source of B vitamins. While it is seemingly more expensive than other rices, wild rice is actually an outstanding value, since it quadruples in volume when cooked.
Wild Rice has a pleasantly chewy texture and a rich, but mild nutty flavor. It's often served with game, pork or poultry. Wild Rice is frequently paired with nuts, wild mushrooms and dried fruit and is outstanding when used in soups or pilafs.
