Cooking Wild Rice
Begin by rinsing 2 cups of rice well under cold water. After rice has been thoroughly rinsed add to a medium size stock pot with 8 cups of cold water. Bring water to a boil then cover and turn down to a simmer. Cook rice for 40 minutes then turn off heat and let rice bloom in hot water. Check every 5 minutes for doneness and desired texture. Note: This will not be similar to white or brown rice where all water is fully absorbed, if water has fully evaporated prior to 40 minute mark add additional cup of hot water to pot. Once rice has reached desired texture after giving time to bloom remove from heat and drain off any excess water.
We prefer a light fluffy rice but with a bit of bite remaining for texture. Remember shorter time for tougher rice, longer cook time for softer chewy texture.
Great flavor, quality, and price point. Wild rice soup is a fall tradition and this is perfect!
The rice is great as usual. I guess it has been blanched? Didn't need to rinse it before boiling. Glad to help support your efforts.
This wild rice is wonderful--chewy with a rich, earthy taste. I cooked a big pot and ate it for breakfast--that's how much I loved it!
So enjoyed the rice
Really good. Am now a fan. Used it in turkey soup and worked really well. Would definitely recommend and have to friends.
