Back in the early 1970s, my dad and a buddy harvested wild rice from a small lake near the Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge. My parents stored the wild grain in coffee cans, and Mom cooked it as a side dish just once a year, on Thanksgiving.
The stuff keeps forever, and we enjoyed that Minnesota wild rice for nearly 20 days of thanks. It may have been my favorite part of the holiday, and I always wondered why we didn’t eat more of it.
Maybe because even though wild rice has a humble background, it’s not cheap. A pound of legitimately hand-harvested wild rice from a Midwestern wetland can set you back $20 at a grocery store. Of course, there are more affordable options.
