Hand Harvested Wild Rice- (Manoomin)
Hand-harvested wild rice in the lakes and rivers of northern Wisconsin and Minnesota. This rice is parched over a wood fire and has a flavor superior to paddy grown wild rice. The flavor difference is primarily due to handling and processing practices. Over the years, we have had a number of people reluctant to try our rice because they had previously eaten paddy grown wild rice and did not like it. People are often surprised at the flavor difference.
We like to use the Ojibwa term for Wild Rice, Manoomin, to help distinguish it from the more common paddy grown wild rice. Generally, if you see the word Manoomin used, it is hand-harvested, traditional wild rice and only takes 25-35 minutes to cook.
We sell out of the product most years, so be sure to get your rice soon.
