Chicken and Wild Rice Sausage

Postby NCPaul » Sun Aug 05, 2018 2:23 pm

Wild rice is an interesting grain. Traditionally it is harvested while in a canoe. My sister sent me this which was harvested by the Chippewa in northern Minnesota.

I cooked 100 g of it in 250 g of chicken stock (about 2/3 c of rice in about 1 & 1/3 c of stock). It cooks longer than the more usual types of rice and doesn't release starch as the grains rupture. It has a faintly nutty taste and a chewy texture.

Wow. Canoe harvested, that's a new one on me. Isn't it some for of wild grass rather than a true rice?

Here's a good video showing the harvest. After watching it, I can see why it has a high price.

It's incredible. It's fantastic that it still goes on, but is controlled, so that it's not over exploited.
