					              Wild Rice Nutrition Facts        Fall Rive r Wild Rice

Wild rice is easy to prepare, and the
texture can be varied to your liking - the
longer it cooks, the softer and fluffier the
grains become. Simmering in broth or
wine gives wild rice a rich, full-bodied
taste, and its flavor can be further
enhanced by adding sliced vegetables,
chopped nuts, or fruit pieces. Wild rice can
be extended by combining it with brown
or white rice. Uncooked wild rice will
keep almost indefinitely when stored in an
airtight container. Cooked, it will keep for
10-14 days refrigerated, or can be frozen
up to six months.
