Did you know that wild rice is not a rice at all but a long-grain marsh grass? Stored in an airtight container in a cool, dark place, wild rice will keep almost indefinitely. Be sure to clean wild rice before cooking. Place the rice in a bowl, fill with cold water and stir a few times. Set aside for a several minutes to allow any matter to float to the surface, then pour off the water.
