Dawglover--how do you keep natural wild rice for 10 years? I go through 10 lb every 4-6 months--but that's because I know I'm going to MN and can restock! For backup, I have that "cultivated" stuff" (I give that as hostess gifts to those who don't know better--my bad).Only my brother and "real" friends get the natural wild rice.

The Grade A pops, so you don't have to buy the more expensive stuff to make popped wild rice.

The price is what I pay in MN when I don't go to the reservation and buy it direct.

I give FRESH eggs to friends. I stopped by to give a friend a dozen eggs yesterday--she asked me if I had any wild rice I'd be willing to part with...for that, she'd pay me. Guess what she is getting for Christmas (no, not a chicken, not eggs, guess again!).

CWS, it got lost and reshuffled in the cupboard. Will definitely get more, and it will be consumed well before a decade is up!

CWS--I have often heard people say that wild rice is not a grain, it is a grass. Botanically, a grain is the fruit of a grass plant. Wild rice IS a grass, but corn and wheat and barley and oats are all members of the grass family too.

Either this thread got seriously moderated or CWS wins the award for the most consecutive posts in a row in one thread

I always thought wild rice was a grain. At least the stuff in a restaurant that you order as wild rice.

We live in wild rice territory, and I'm thinking it's been awhile since I made some. Game hens & wild rice. Yum. On my list soon!

True grasses, Poaceae, are flowering plants, the flowers in this case being spiklets typical of grains. It's so commonly mentioned that wild rice is not "rice" that we tend to imagine they're not close relatives. But they're both grasses and both members of the Oryzeae tribe of grass but are separate genera. They're closer to each other than either of them is to wheat, barley, oats, or millet.
