Growing up with wild rice in Minnesota, this is a must for any expedition, whether it's in the Boundary Waters canoeing or climbing Denali in winter. This rice has totally replaced our expedition breakfast staple of oatmeal and muesli. We'd often mix in the wild rice in with the local's recipes such as chicken noodle soup to add some extra nutrition while on the trail. Simply Native's wild rice stays with us longer, is more nutritious and tastes better.
The wild rice is fast cooking (under 10 minutes) and can also simply be left in cold water overnight as a cooking method. So if in an emergency scenario, you run out of fuel, this is a food that can be made without a stove.
