|Wild rice/Brown rice||2 Cup (32 tbs)|

Cook wild rice in boiling salted water until just tender but not mushy.
Drain liquid from mushrooms into a saucepan.
Add the milk and heat until scalding.
Mix cornstarch with water to make a paste, and stir in.
Stirring constantly, cook until thickened.
Stir in sherry, soy sauce, and salt and pepper to taste, remembering that ham will add some saltiness.
In a greased 3-quart casserole, arrange layers of rice, ham, mushrooms, and halved artichoke hearts; then repeat the layers.
Pour over the sherry-flavored cream sauce and sprinkle with shredded cheese.
Bake, uncovered, in a slow oven (300°) for 1 hour, or until it is thoroughly heated.
Makes 6 to 8 servings.
