Trappers Wild Rice Recipe

If there is anyone left in the Nancy’s recipe family that hasn't tasted wild rice I highly suggest you do. Nutty, sweet, a bit crunchy and a wonderful side to many main dishes. When I make wild rice if I add any leftover meat from a previous meal it then becomes my main dish. Often I will sauté mushrooms and onions and add cooked wild rice with a bit of seasoning. Also, leftover wild rice freezes very well. Sometimes I cook up a batch of plain wild rice and freeze it in portions for me. Then I can add any add’l ingredients if I want to. Enjoy!

1 cup uncooked wild rice
4 cups water
2 medium carrots, sliced 1/8 inch thick
1 medium onion, sliced 1/8 inch thick
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sage leaves, rubbed to release flavor
1/2 tsp. pepper
2 tsp. minced fresh garlic
1 tsp grated fresh gingerroot

In a 2-quart saucepan, combine all of the above. Bring to a full boil. Cover, cook over medium heat until wild rice is tender (45-50 min.). Drain off any excess liquid.

Stir in:
1/2 cup apple juice
3 tbsp. honey

Continue cooking until heated through.

Stir in and serve:
2 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
