Citrus Wild Rice
Rinse the rice thoroughly in cold water in a strainer. Place it in a large saucepan with 3 quarts water. Bring rice to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer the rice for 30 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and let the rice stand until tender, about 30 minutes. Drain well in a colander and blot dry. Meanwhile, cut the oranges into segments. Cut off the rind ( both zest and white pith) to expose the flesh. Make V-shaped cuts to remove the individual segments from the membranes. Dice most of the segments, reserving a few whole for garnish. soak the raisins in the orange juice in a mixing bowl for 5 minutes. Whisk the capers, olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper into the orange juice-raisin mixture. Stir in the scallions, chopped parsley, rice, and diced orange segments. Correct the seasoning, adding salt or vinegar to taste. Mound the rice on a platter or plates and decorate with the reserved whole orange segments and parsley sprigs.
