Growing up in Minnesota, this recipe has been a staple at our Thanksgiving and Christmas Table for as long as I can remember. I have been living in Southern Missouri for the past 5 years and am amazed that people here have not ever tasted, let alone heard of wild rice, and you can't get it here at the local stores. I have my MN. people mail it to me. I could live on it!!!In our family, we call it "Mom's Wild Rice" I don't know where the recipe originally came from, but every person that I know that has tried it, makes it a part of their Holiday meals!!!Get the real "natural" wild rice. It is rather expensive, but goes such a long way!!!DEFINATELY COMFORT FOOD!!!!Tell me what you think!
