Being up on the Great Lakes my staple food is Wild Rice. Not that black rice or cultivated patty rice but REAL wild rice from inland lakes. This actual stuff is greenish-gray at times a little tan colored and has a strong nutty smell. Hard to find but worth it! Going price around here currently on the Minn/Canada border is 6-7$ a pound. Like you do with corn, parch it in a little oil, it will pop and some will take the appearance of gray or white rice krispies, at maple sugar or berries or nuts and use as trail ration, or when you boil it up, being parched it will cook FAST to tenderness. For a real treat at home use a larger quantity of oil and fry the wild rice in pretty hot oil, it will REALLY pop up, then salt like popcorn and pop in your favorite copy of Last of the Mohicans or a Baker video! Enjoy
