Buyer's guide

Wild rice is available in many colours, and the flavours range from sweet to smokey. It is often sold combined with ordinary rice.


Stored in an airtight container, wild rice will keep for several months.


Wash the rice and soak before use. It will take about 45 minutes to cook. Once cooked, set aside to cool and use in salads, or for stuffing vegetables, turkey or game birds.
