My kids wouldn't eat wild rice for just that reason--"Looks like bugs, Mom, I am NOT eating that."

Too bad, more for me.

I have friends in Ely Minnesota who mail me rice from time to time--they can buy a five pound bag for $22.

You can order it from Mealey's in Ely: Mealey's Gift and Sauna Shop - Home

Do a search for wild rice on that site.

more worms, please.

i love wild rice, and better yet, the stories of how it was manually harvested by the native americans. i've used similar techniques with my canoe and wild mountain-lake blueberries.

uncle ben's is made from soylent green, btw.

Actually, if you read the label on the Uncle Ben's box ... it's "Long Grain and Wild Rice" with herbs. I have a couple of dishes I make using it because straight wild rice would be too heavy.

Actually, LEFSElover - they are not worms - they are maggots. Just look at the size! Worms would be bigger.

All silliness aside - when you add uncooked rice to a pot with hot oil - the moisture in the "rice" will rapidly expand and "pop" (the same thing that happens in pop-corn). This is how I start off my pilafs ... I saute onion and maybe some garlic, then when I add the rice I stir it around to make sure it is coated with fat and when the first few grains start to pop - that's when I add my stock.

I had a similar thing happen to me many years ago. My mom always made the best Great Northern Beans, so I thought I would make some. The problem was I was working and didn't have the time in one night to cook them properly, so I cooked them most of the way one night and refrigerated them. The next night I started to finish them for dinner only to see little pink worm looking things on top. I thought they were bad so I tossed them. When I told my mom, she said it was the eyes of the beans that separate and rise to the top. I suppose because they were refrigerated, it was more evident than a complete cooking cycle would have been.

I was perusing some of these older threads and found this one. I used to like wild rice mixed with white and brown. But now??????????????????

The next time you decide to make this, post in
"What Are You Cooking Today?"

"WORMS!!!!!" bet you get a good response, again!

Ha,ha!

1) oil is not water...wild rice into hot water is different from wild rice into hot oil

2) Uncle Ben's product has been parboiled already so it cooks in less time etc but also the husk has been conditioned.

3) wild rice is not a grain but a grass so it acts differently from other rices going into hot oil.

so I doubt it is worms as wild rice is grown in watery wetlands. cook some in water and see what you see.

if they are worms, it's just extra protein...perfectly safe. (just kidding)
