From the moment you open the wild rice satchel you will know you have the real deal as the exquisite natural nutty aroma fills the air.
Please don't confuse this with paddy grown "wild rice". They look and taste completely different! The much darker (often black) paddy rice is machine planted and machine harvested, resulting in a bland tasting rice that may take up to 3 times longer to cook and yields a lot less per pound. Many rice paddies are sprayed with herbicides. Our hand-harvested wild rice grows naturally on the lakes and riverbeds in Northern Minnesota on the Leech Lake Indian Reservation. This mouth watering nutty taste cannot be compared to the mass produced paddy rice.
The light color of wild rice indicates quality wild rice.
We do not mix our batches of wild rice! All of the rice you receive in your order will be from the same lake or riverbed. Assuring your wild rice will cook evenly and have the same quality taste.
Our wild rice is wood parched. By using this method versus propane (which dries the rice) our wild rice is left moister, resulting in fluffier, more flavorful, faster cooking rice.
If stored in a dry place, wild rice will keep for years!
