Minnesota Cultivated Long Grain Wild Rice
1 lb Bag (16 oz.) Minnesota Cultivated Long Grain Wild Rice
Minnesota Cultivated Long grain “extra fancy” wild rice, our most popular and best selling wild rice! Dark finish gives a great plate presentation!
Premium wild rice . . . grown, harvested and cultivated from both northern Minnesota and Canada. KC’s Best Wild Rice offers the finest quality wild rice Northern MN and Canada have to offer. Whether harvested by hand on natural lakes by Leech Lake and White Earth Bands of Ojibwe Native Americans or machine harvested, both styles of wild rice are carefully grown with tradition and value in mind.
Today, most wild rice is grown in paddy fields and is planted and harvested by machine. This keeps up with product demand and also keeps the cost down, while still providing a quality and flavorful product. The savings is passed on to our customers. Some styles of wild rice are still grown and harvested the same as it was done centuries ago – by canoe and knocking sticks. The harvested rice is parched with special care to ensure texture, flavor and its natural goodness.
