Bring a pot with the four cups of water to a boil. Once boiling, add the rinsed wild rice, and quickly bring the pot back to a boil.
Cover the pot with a lid, and turn the heat down to medium or medium low. Let the rice simmer for 40 to 45 minutes.
Checkthe rice for done-ness. Simply taste it with a spoon to check the texture. It should have a little bit of a chew, but not be hard in the middle.
If there is a little liquid remaining in the pot, simply strain it out. This may happen depending on the variety, size of the wild rice etc.
Serve the cooked wild rice immediately. It may also be cooled down to be used in other recipes such as grain salads, or stuffings.
Some people prefer their wild rice, quite chewy and barely broken open, while others insist it must be fully burst open. I prefer it somewhere in the middle with most of the grains burst open, yet not cooked to mush. Depending on your preference simply add or subtract 5 minutes of cooking time.
