Stovetop Method

Take 1 cup uncooked wild rice and add to 4 cups of boiling water in a heavy saucepan.  Add seasonings for flavor.  Examples: salt, lemon pepper, chicken or beef bouillon cubes, or chicken or beef broth (would replace water).  Return water to boil and stir.  Reduce heat and simmer, covered, 50-60 minutes or just until kernels puff open.  Uncover and fluff with table fork.  Simmer five additional minutes.  Drain any excess liquid.  For chewier texture cook less time.   Yield:  3-4 cups of cooked wild rice.
