California Wild Rice
Freshly harvested and California-grown with a rich, nutty flavor.
Native to the Americas, wild rice has too long been stuck on the holiday table or teamed with salmon and little else. Don't let odd marketing fool you; wild rice makes a great everyday meal.
Wild rice is not a true "rice" but an "aquatic seed." It has a chewy texture and distinct nutty flavor. It goes with beans or sauteed vegetables and while it may take awhile to cook (about an hour), it's easy and the results are delicious.
