Food Facts

Did you know that wild rice is not a rice at all but a long-grain marsh grass? Stored in an airtight container in a cool, dark place, wild rice will keep almost indefinitely. Be sure to clean wild rice before cooking. Place the rice in a bowl, fill with cold water and stir a few times. Set aside for a several minutes to allow any matter to float to the surface, then pour off the water.

    My guests liked it very much. Next time I make it, I am going to use a wild rice / brown rice mix; eliminate the(2) saucepans of rice cooking. Also, I think pecans would go well with this recipe.

    How to fake gourmet: this easy recipe! Has become my staple show-off recipe.

    This is a wonderful recipe. I have made it several times and it always pleases my guests! I like it better after it has been refrigerated overnight because it softens the cranberries and highlights the sweet-sour aspect of the salad.
