Are you prepared for an earthquake? The Statesman Journal, Salem, OR has been doing a series on preparedness. One product that was not mentioned was storing up wild rice. Basically Wild Rice will store indefinitely. Wild Rice is a source of fiber and protein. It will swell 3-4 times when cooked, so a little will go along way. If there is no heat source, just soak it in water or a safe liquid. Heating it will shorten the time it takes to soften.
Just a thought about what might be a good source of food in the event of an earthquake or even a flood. I thought about this Monday night as Mt. Hood in Oregon was having a “swarm” of minor earthquakes.
