Northern wild rice is the official state grain of Minnesota. With a rugged and earthy taste, with more character than its soft, domesticated counterpart. Wild rice has a nutty tea-like flavor, and a texture that pushes back when you chew. Glen's carries a variety of wild rice, from Canadian airboat harvested, to wood parched and hand harvested.
