Oh, that is expensive. I get it bulk for about $3/lb. I have a bin full of that one. Love it!

My only experience is that wild rice takes a lot more time to cook than regular rice. The mixes must par-boil the wild rice in the combo. I haven't tried it in years, but it seems to me I started the wild rice a half hour before I tossed in the regular long grain rice the times I was successful.

Thanks, Alix. I copied it to my Favorites so I can read it later.

$8 a pound seems like a lot, but as a retired lady, I also need to treat myself to a few nice things in my remaining years.

My mom used to use some of those rice blends and the smell and flavor was extraordinary!! I could never remember the brand. But seeing the bag logo that is the brand. I never knew where she got them almost 30 years ago. Thank you so much for the link.

Which kinds did you like best for taste and for aroma?

ALL of them!! Sorry I can't say which ones were the best because they were all good and smelled fantastic. I am not sure what blends she got I just ate them!

I think I'll start with Jasmine. When you mentioned aroma, that's what I thought of, so I guess it should be first. I love making the house smell good with cooking.
