Wild rice is a real Canadian delicacy, but it can be pricey. Feel free to do a 50/50 blend of wild rice and brown long-grain rice if the cost is prohibitive.
1 tbsp butter or olive oil
1 1/2 cups uncooked wild rice
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup cranberries (optional)1/2 cup dry white wine
In 3-quart saucepan, heat butter over medium heat. Add rice and stir until toasted, about 2 minutes.
Add onions, salt, and cranberries (if using).
Stir for 1 minute, then add 3 cups water, and white wine, and cover with lid.
Bring to a boil, then turn heat to low and simmer until rice has absorbed all the liquid, about 1 hour.
Fluff with fork.
I’m Danielle French, founder and owner of South Pond Farms. South Pond was founded in 2008 as a small food delivery business. I would grow food in my garden, make prepared meals and deliver them all over the GTA. Since then, the farm has been slowly restored and converted into a culinary destination, offering special events, weddings, workshops and corporate retreats all set in our restored century barn in the rolling hills of rural Ontario. My vision is to create a connection to the land, the food we grow and prepare in our kitchen to bringing people together.
