Whole Grain Rice Information, tips and recipe

Fall is a great time to create a dish with wild rice. Before you start the cooking process perhaps it would be wise to read a few helpful tips:

  • store wild rice in a cool dry place. A tightly covered container is wise choice as well
  • 1 lb of wild rice will serve between 20 - 25 individuals. Wild rice has a way of puffing up a lot
  • one cup of raw rice will make up 3 to 4 cups of cooked rice
  • dont worry if you make up too much you can freeze wild rice for a later use
  • Blending wild rice with brown or white rice simply use an equal 50/50 ratio
  • water should be replaced with chicken broth for greater flavor 
  • microwaving is not recommended when cooking wild rice
  • lumberjacks in the past have enjoyed wild rice for breakfast with honey and milk like they would oatmeal. 
  • reheat wild rice using 2 Tbsp of butter and heat.
