- 4 ounces uncooked wild rice

Meanwhile, sauté celery and onion in butter for 5 minutes. Add apple and pecans to celery and onion. Sauté 5 more minutes. They need to stay slightly crisp.
Add above to rice. Stir in cayenne and cracked pepper. Simmer 5 more minutes. (I also like to add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. This is optional.) Let set for a few minutes prior to serving. Serve with pork or fowl.
