Default-piece-image-0

Popped wild rice with dried cranberries and blueberries

3 cups handparched net lake wild rice
3 cups of canola oil
1 cup of dried blueberries
1 cup of dried seedless cranberries
2 cups of sliced hazelnuts
½ cup of granulated maple sugar

Pour the canola oil into a small saucepan and turn the stove on to medium heat.  After about 5 minutes drop a kernel of wild rice into the oil.  If the kernel of rice immediately rises to the surface of the oil and puffs up then the oil will be at the right temperature. If the kernel doesn’t rise to the surface or puff up then the oil is not hot enough so wait 2 minutes and try again.
After the oil is hot enough put 2 tablespoons of rice into an all metal sieve, preferably about the same size as the saucepan and dip the sieve with the rice in it, into the hot oil.  After the rice puffs up, and it should only take a few seconds to puff up.  Then dump the rice into a bowl lined with paper towel to absorb the excess oil.  Repeat the process until all of the rice is used.  Then remove the saucepan from the heat.
Stir the popped rice to make sure any remaining oil is absorbed by the paper towel.  Gently grab the paper towel and slowly slide it out from under the popped rice while gently shaking off any rice on it then discard the paper towel.  Add the rest of the ingredients and stir until mixed and serve.
Prepared by Donald Chosa Jr.
