Wild Rice, California Grown, 16oz


In stock

California grown, this Wild Rice has a great chewy texture and distinct nutty flavor.

Wild rice is not a true “rice”, but an “aquatic seed, and is one of the New World’s native grains.


Tasting Suggestions:

  • May take awhile to cook (about an hour)
  • Wild rice is not fully cooked until the grain opens and you see the white germ
  • Cook with aromatic vegetables and water for best result
  • Serve with salmon, in a holiday stuffing, or with ground beef and seasonal vegetables
  • Makes for a unique bell pepper stuffing!

I was shopping one August for tomatoes and, despite Napa being one of the world’s most magnificent agricultural regions, all the tomatoes were from a hothouse in Holland! Worse, they were hard and pale pink instead of the ripe tomatoes I was craving. I started to grow my own tomatoes and this eventually led to beans.
