Once the package is opened, make sure to store unused wild rice in a sealed container in a cool, dry place. If unused for too long, it can attract bugs.
Be sure to rinse wild rice well before cooking. Place it in a fine-mesh sieve and run it under cold water while roiling it with your fingers.
Wild rice generally takes longer to cook than other rice, so be sure to read the package instructions and add that to your prep time for a meal.
Wild rice puffs up a lot, even more then white rice, so about 1 cup of raw wild rice will equal 3 to 4 servings of cooked.
If you want to add even more flavor to wild rice, cook it in vegetable, beef or chicken broth instead of water.
Wild rice tastes great served with honey and milk (similar to oatmeal) or mixed with eggs for a healthy and satisfying breakfast. To reheat leftover wild rice, place it in a pot over medium-low heat with some butter and stir until warmed through.
