Best Mistake Ever!
So like I said, I made wild rice. After about 20 or so minutes of the rice cooking, I got a phone call from a dear friend, and in typical Kobritz fashion, totally forgot about the rice and burned it. I only realized this because, well, I smelled something burning. I thought for sure the rice was no good, but of course tried to salvage what I could. I put the rice in a bowl, took a tablespoon of unsalted butter and let it melt, stirred the batch and took a bite. OMgoodness. It was crunchy, sort of barbecue-y and totally delicious!!! Will add a very nice texture to my experimental Asian salad tomorrow for lunch. It can't hurt to slightly over-cook the rice. A beautiful mistake.
