Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • To rinse rice, place rice in a pan of warm water. Stir and lift rice with your fingers to clean thoroughly and remove any particles that float to the top; drain. Repeat.

  • In a medium saucepan, bring 3 cups water to boiling. Add salt to the water. Slowly add wild rice. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 40 to 45 minutes or until most of the water is absorbed, grains have burst open and rice is tender. Drain, if necessary. Set aside.

  • In a 12-inch nonstick skillet or nonstick large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add almonds; cook and stir about 2 minutes or until just starting to brown. Add cranberries; cook and stir 2 minutes more. Stir in wild rice, 1 cup whipping cream, and 1/4 cup maple syrup. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 3 to 5 minutes or until mixture thickens, stirring frequently.

  • To serve, spoon rice mixture into bowls. Top with fresh berries, additional whipping cream and maple syrup, if like. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
