It is pricey, about $15/lb, but would be nice for that special meal. I do love wild rice! Here is the response I got from the supplier in response to my question about temp of processing:

This is an Ojibwe company based in Minnesota, they gather the rice by hand, in a canoe yet. Sounds like the real deal to me.

Im a big fan of wild rice. The nutty hearty taste goes great with rustic dishes. I never knew you could eat it raw though. Learn somethin everyday.

One of the first raw dishes I made was a wild rice and mushroom casserole. It was from KristenRaw and it was divine. I was so disappointed to find out my rice was not raw!
T.O, to prepare it, you just soak it until it is soft. It will still retain some chewiness but I like that.
My daughter made a dish of wild rice and avocado stuffed in mushrooms. She said it was really tasty.

Any chance of scoring this recipe? I tried to google it, but to no avail :o

I do not think the parched rice would work. I see it is primarily grown in ponds and small lakes, and I have some of those around here which might work. I do not know if its important for the area to be especially cold in the winter.
