Default Wild Rice advise, please!

Tomorrow is our annual holiday potluck at work. I'm suppossed to bring
a side dish, and I've had a jones for wild rice, so I thought I'd make
that. I just use chicken stock, almonds, and mushrooms. What is your
opinion on how I should do this? I'm thinking I will cook it about
halfway tonight, and then bring it in a crockpot and finish it at work
tomorrow. TIA!!

This would be convenient to make/bring and it's really good.
Always a hit.

Corn and Wild Rice Pudding

Recipe courtesy Emeril Lagasse, 2000

2 eggs
1 egg yolk
1 cup heavy or whipping cream
2/3 cup milk
4 ears sweet corn, blanched and kernels removed from
cobs, about 3 cups corn
1 cup cooked wild rice
3 scallions, finely chopped or 1/3 cup finely chopped
scallions
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon grated fresh nutmeg
1/2 tablespoon butter

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

In a large bowl, combine egg, egg yolk, heavy cream and
milk and whisk well to combine. Add all remaining
ingredients except butter and mix well.

Grease a 7 by 11 or 8 by 12-inch casserole with the
butter. Pour custard ingredients into prepared casserole
and bake uncovered for 45 minutes, or until custard is
set and golden brown on the top.


Serve warm.

Yield: 6 to 8 servings

That sounds good, but doesn't sound "potluckable"...

I don't think you can do "potluckable" wild rice. Definitely not in a crock
pot. Wild rice needs extended cooking at a higher heat then a crock pot
would produce.

I'd just serve the above recipe cold. It's quite good that way.

Sounds like you've already decided how you're going to do it.
If it were me, I'd cook the wild rice completely, using chicken broth
for the liquid and stir in toasted slivered almonds and sauteed
mushrooms (sauteed in butter) when you heat it at work in the crockpot.

I would cook the wild rice by boiling the water-rinsed (about 4 times)
rice in a large quantity of liquid until it's tender, anywhere from
15-45 minutes, depending on the kind of rice you use. Then drain it
well and it's ready for use in your recipe (or mine :-)

Agreed. For just a basic rice dish I would just cook it and reheat
in the crock pot onsite. No benefit from parcooking this dish.

Thanks Barb- that's the answer I was looking for. Do you think I
should bring some extra stock along with me? Hope you're staying warm
back there!

You're welcome. Enjoy it! I love wild rice, especially when it's not
adulterated with white rice as an extender.

If it'll make you feel better to bring extra broth, go ahead. :-) I'd
be more inclined to bring butter, though. :-0) You don't want this
rice dish to be too wet. The trick will be to put the rice into the
crockpot and not keep poking at it. I wouldn't poke it more than once
every 30-45 minutes, or you'll really be losing heat from the pot. JMO.

I am grateful for central heating, a reliable car, and warm clothes. I
was in Duluth for a couple days, just got back this afternoon. We are
going BACK up there tomorrow. It was below zero there but not as much
snow there as here (south metro Minneapolis area).

We'll arrive early afternoon and I'll make pot roast for supper for the
kids and us. I bought a 2# bag of carrots (real ones) to use. We love
the carrots that have been in the covered pan with the roast. Potatoes,
gravy, roast beast, carrots. It'll be good.

Do you get paddy-grown or lake/river-grown, Reg?
Ever use it in a cold salad?

When you say "real" carrots, I'm guessing you don't mean those way
overpriced shaved bits of carrots that are called "baby carrots"? My
lovebird Peaches (my brother has her) liked to nibble on those and that's
the only reason I ever bought them. They cost twice as much as a regular
bunch of carrots. When making pot roast, regular carrots are the only way
to go. IMHO. And I don't even like carrots But I definitely add them to
pot roast and stew. I don't actually have to eat them

I agree about just straight wild rice. I made it last night, and it's
in the crockpot right now heating up- it came out great. Thanks for
the butter idea- I had the leftover cooking liquid in a bag on the
counter with the intent to bring it along, but forgot it in the rush
to get out the door this am! There is a small deli up the street, and
they are selling all of their grocery items at 30-50% off, so that's
where I got the rice- regular priced at 7.95 #. Guess I'll have to go
get more...

I'm about to take a pot roast from the oven; I used about 2 pounds of
beautiful and straight carrots in it - we love carrots that've been
baked with a pot roast. I've just tasted the liquid I'll use for the
gravy and carrots really sweetened it. :-) It's going to be one fine
meal for us and Beck's family. Yum.
