Wild Rice Sprouts

Wild Rice Sprouts

$21.85 Lb.

Sprouted Wild Rice is the most tender of the rices. It is not actually a rice at all but an aquatic grass native to large parts of North America. After harvesting from lakes it is slow roasted ("parched") to preserve the grains so is not technically a living food, but when soaked in water it is delicious! You may cook it too if you wish - it will still be nutritious, and it will cook fast. We also offer Brown - Short Grain. Rice is nice. @:-)


Our Rice comes from a source which is certified organic.

About

Wild Rice is all together different. It is too long a grain to survive intact through all the shipping it encounters; between the farmer and you, but though it has a higher percentage of broken seeds than other seeds we sell, it soaks up water readily and - to us - is the most edible of sprouted rices.

Wild Rice is harvested green, and placed in long narrow rows about 10 inches in depth in a curing yard. While the wild rice is in the curing rows, the chlorophyll dissipates from the plant. To prevent damage to the seed, the process involves turning constantly, and adding water to closely approximate its natural watery repository. From the curing yard the browned rice kernal with its seed hull intact goes to the parchers where the moisture is dried out. During this process, the starches gelatinize and the characteristic roasted nutty flavor is developed. From the parchers, the rice is hulled, removing the fibrous hull, exposing only the shiny black wild rice seed.

Though the brown rice we offer produces a bulging germ or a tiny sprout - Wild Rice doesn't do either. It's so good, we really don't care. It is edible uncooked and cooks up more quickly if you're going that way.
