Once it is fermented wild rice can be consumed entirely raw.
It is simply a matter of taste.
Without boiling the fermented wild rice is crunchy.
Add combinations of soaked walnuts + dried pears or pecans + apples.

Fermented Wild Rice
1 1/2 to 2 cups Wild Rice
Place rice in a glass jar and cover with cold water.
Allow the Rice to ferment in a closed jar for 3-4 days at room temperature.
Drain, rinse and refill with cold water once per day.
Note: Some say that rinsing and draining away the liquid can reduce the amount of nutrients.
It is assumed that along with the reduction of phytic acid, the beneficial minerals also are degraded.
Without rinsing the rice becomes mushy and the water becomes very murky.
To cook: Rinse fermented wild rice and place in a medium sauce pan.
Cover with water.
Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer. (Medium to low heat setting) Simmer and stir occasionally for 20-25 minutes.
The cooking time is drastically lower than usual since it has soaked for three days!
Once tender enough to your liking rinse the rice under cold water to stop the cooking and prevent clumping.
Do not over cook! Taste test at fifteen minutes.
