SALE! (Rice) Susan Carol Hauser. Wild Rice: An Essential Guide to Cooking, History, and Harvesting

The Ojibwe people call wild rice “mahnomen,” the good berry. Wild Rice elaborates on the many elements of that tradition, and brings it forward in fresh, delectable recipes. This comprehensive guide to Zizania palustris tells the story of North America’s only native grain, from its emergence in the western Great Lakes area to its use in today’s kitchens. The book demystifies the purchasing of wild rice—black or brown, long grain or short grain, lake rice or river rice, US rice or Canadian rice—clarifies cooking options, and proposes wild rice as a fast food (cook a full pound and freeze in small packets).
