How to use
Always start with rinsing the wild rice thoroughly in cold water before cooking it! 1 cup of uncooked wild rice yields 3 to 4 cups cooked wild rice.
Bring 6 cups water to a boil, then add a teaspoon fine sea salt and 1 cup of wild rice. Bring everything back to a boil, then reduce the heat to maintain a low boil. Cook until the rice is tender, about 45 minutes. Drain the rice. You can serve warm or rinse with cold water to cool it down and use in another cold dish like a salad.
Wild rice can be popped like popcorn, and even if it doesn't get as big and fluffy or puffy as popcorn, the dried and cured grains of wild rice become a crunchy and delicious snack.
