       Title: COOKED WILD RICE
  Categories: Vegetables
       Yield: 2 servings
  
     1/3 c  Wild Rice
       1 c  Water
       1    Bacon Strip; Thick, Lean
       1 ts Butter; Unsalted
            Salt
            White Pepper; Freshly Ground
  
   Put the wild rice and water in a small sauce pan.
    Bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat to a
   bare simmer, cover and cook until the rice is tender,
   1 to 1 1/4 hours.  While the rice is cooking, saute
   the bacon until golden brown and crisp, then drain on
   a paper towel.  Cut the bacon crosswise into thin
   julienne strips and set aside.  When the rice is done,
   gently stir in the butter with a fork until melted;
   season to taste with salt and pepper.  Just before
   serving, toss the rice with the bacon strips.
   Makes 1 cup
