Pure Grade A Cultivated Minnesota Wild Rice is a medium brown color and has a rich nut-like roasted flavor and a chewy texture. The approximate cooking time is only 40 - 45 minutes. There are no short or broken grains, just pure long grains that will cook uniformly. The rice fields are closely monitored to insure harvesting precisely when the wild rice kernel is at its optimum stage of maturity. 8oz package.
