    Come on peeps. Wild rice is not related to domestic rice any more than the grass seeds in my yard are. Does one look anything like the other? No. Do they grow in similar climates? No. Do your own research if you care enough. If not, there ya go.

    Thanks for the tip on rinsing the rice to get rid of starch!
    Yes that's why I mentioned different rice requires different amount of water. The package says it anyway however the best way to cook rice regardless of what it is to boil and simmer. Your rice will always come out cooked.

    We cook a lot of rice, always in a rice cooker. I keep a lot of different kinds of rice in the house. It's mostly for my boyfriend. At the moment, I'm trying to get all my carbs from non-starchy vegetables and fruit, which fills my plate a lot better, and has been helping me lose weight.
