“This is a must have during the holidays, my mom always has it at their Christmas party and we've had it at many Christmas Eve dinners. You can't use the boxed kind of wild rice, it has to be just plain old wild rice. Minnesota wild rice if you can get it. You can also add 3 tbs of slivered almonds if you'd like. This freezes well.”
