Oh yes he did. I remember.

I just looked up the Shelton's Chicken And Rice Soup. We used to buy it
canned. It was gluten free but it seems it is no longer available. Which
is probably a good thing. I don't know what they did to it but there was no
actual soup in the can! The picture on the can shows chicken soup with lots
of broth and mostly brown rice with a little wild. What came out of the can
was mostly wild rice, a little brown rice, a little chicken and only enough
broth to dampen it all.

No matter which side of the fence you are on, you are agreeing with him
because he said one thing first then another.

Or in the ingredients list it should have been written: 1/2 cup
UNcooked wild rice... then like all other ingredients indicate how to
proceed with all the ingredients in the recipe's Method section. This
discussion is highly indicative of why I'm always bitching about
superfluous commas... most folks haven't a clue about the proper use
of commas. I try to minimize my use of commas. Rather than start a
new sentence and have to use the shift key I use elipsis, also to
indicate I've chosen to omit a lengthy redundant explanation. My use
of elipsis began when I started to use a pc as I'm a lousy typist...
saves me key strokes.

Do you really believe that recipe means to use 2 cups of UNcooked
rice? If you do then you are even dumber than I thought.

It does indeed mean cooked rice, but what I said is that it's
incorrect to make that soup using cooked wild rice. Makes more sense
to add raw rice and let it cook in the soup... just allow adequate
liquid... and one can always add more liquid to a soup but difficult
to remove excess without overcooking the ingredients... Campbell's
does that with all their condensed soups. All the soups I cook in my
16 quart pot are made condensed and then frozen... then to heat I
simply place the lump of frozen soup in a pot and add a near equal
volume of water by eyeball and heat. The frozen soup defrosts as the
water heats. It's rare I need to reseason as the soup was prepared
with reduced liquid as it was made originally. Each pint container of
soup I freeze makes a quart, saves a lot of freezer space.

>> Jesus, where was I agreeing with Sheldon? "2 cups wild rice, cooked"
>> means you measure 2 cups of raw rice then cook it.


No it does NOT! Do you have any idea how much cooked wild rice 2
cups of UNcooked wild rice makes? "2 cups wild rice, cooked" means 2
cups of cooked wild rice... same as "2 cups of onion, diced" means
exactly the same as "2 cups of diced onion". Anyone who actually
cooks would plainly see that 2 cups of raw wild rice would be way too
much in relation to the other ingredients in that recipe... two cups
of UNcooked wild rice would be about right for my 16 qt pot. If the
recipe was written correctly it would call for whatever quantity of
"UNcooked" wild rice... that's how the wild rice soup recipes I found
are written, and that's how I would cook a wild rice soup, starting
with raw wild rice. Wild rice cooks differently from white rice, wild
rice takes three times longer to cook and is cooked in an abundance of
water and then drained, then much of whatever goodness is in wild rice
is lost... it's more difficult to cook wild rice like white rice so
that it absorbs all the water and ends perfectly cooked, odds are wild
rice will either be underdone or will burn. The wild rice I
photographed is actually two types, one whole grain, one broken grain
(says for soup), that's why there are two bags. That label is
actually a small folded brochure of a dozen recipes, all list UNcooked
wild rice except for the one meat loaf recipe and the one meatball
recipe.... actually 11 recipes, I just counted. There's a recipe for
wild rice clam chowder, wild rice chicken soup, and one for Paul
Harvey's wild rice soup. There're also recipes for wild rice pudding,
wild rice three grain bread, wild rice company casserole, wild rice
stuffing, and turkey wild rice supreme... I've not made any of those
recipes, like I said, I'm not all that fond of wild rice, in fact
yesterday I decided to mix all the broken rice into my bucket of bird
seed... birds won't eat it either, perhaps the squirrils or possums
will. I don't know what I will use the whole grains for. I don't
like brown rice, I like wild rice less. Perhaps wild rice can be
popped, I may try some in my air popper. Yes, it can be popped in oil
but I haven't found anything for air popping. For now I will put the
wild rice in a jar with an apple core or orange rind to rehydrate, it
must be bone dry from being in that plastic bag in my pantry for a few
years. Don't think I'd like wild rice popped in oil:

I've been saying the same thing all along. Your reading comprehension
is lousy, just like the dwarf. Yoose can't follow along because yoose
trim out the pertinent information but yoose too slovenly to trim the
extraneous portions... I'm always having to clean up yoose dreck... I
can only wonder how slovenly yoose abodes. With how yoose leave the
attributions I have to ask when was the last time yoose washed your
ass and put on clean undies.

I'll probably order from them when I need more wild rice.
