Manoomin is a semi-aquatic plant in the Zizania family and the only grain indigenous to North America which is commonly known as a true wild rice. The plants are bent over the hull and the grains are gently tapped from the seed heads into canoes. The grains are then wood parched, an old-school method for removing the husks using a cedarwood fire.A healthy natural food, uncooked wild rice contains more than 12% protein and is richer than white rice. This is a true wild rice that has a vibrantly pleasant nutty flavor and beautiful texture that has not been altered or genetically modified like most cultivated grains. If you have never tried real wild rice, you are in for a real treat.
