Rice from America?
Unlike the rice we know, wild rice is not "real" rice. To be precise, it is the seed of a sweet grass species that was cultivated centuries ago by Native Americans. Wild rice, also known as "water rice", has a nutty aroma and is dark brown in appearance.
Wild rice played an important role, especially for the Chippewa Natives, who lived near the Great Lakes.
