I was born and still live in MN, and this recipe is great. I recommend getting 100% naturally grown wild rice as it is soooo much better than the "mass produced" hard, black variety. A great site is www.christmaspoint.com. Runs about $7/pound. I made this recipe as listed except omitted the sherry and almonds just because I didn't have them. Super delicious, even my 2-year-old couldn't get enough. I've made tons of different wild rice soup recipes over the years, and in my experience you can't skimp on the butter and 1/2 and 1/2 or you may be disappointed. Go for the full fat! I add a lot of extra vegetables, rice, and chicken to make it extra thick and hearty. You may need to add extra salt, to taste. I used Tastefully Simple's "Flavors of India" curry seasoning salt in leu of the salt and curry, and that was awesome. I don't know if they sell it anymore, but it's fantastic in wild rice soup.
