    Default Question about wild rice

    I just can't seem to get mine to blossom and open up like they do in restaurants. Any secrets to making it tender.

    Cook on low heat in covered pan for about 1/2 hr., turn off burner and let sit in covered pan on stove for about 45 minutes. Comes out perfect everytime! Oh, one more thing, be sure to add the proper amt. of water to the rice. It's usually 1 1/2 water to 1 rice.

    Turns out perfect if you make it in the crock-pot too.

    I usually throw it in a pot and add chicken base/broth and simmer..........I keep adding chicken broth as needed. Isn't it like 4# for 9.99 up there? At least I usually buy the broken stuff.

    When I am done and it looks good, I measure out and put it in ziplock bags for the freezer.
    Sometimes it takes quite a while!
