    More leftover chicken in the fridge. A quick loof around the pantry revealed a can of corn, a can of kidney beans, and a can of enchilada sauce. Hmmm. Chicken enchilada soup tonight.

    Wife did a frankfurter and potato goulash.
    Off to eat now!

    Might have a bottle of beer. Or two, I am pretty dehydrated!

    I need to try Black Pudding. One of those things (like Vegemite) that you have to grow up with?
    Hell, I've even tried Grass Jelly. Like sucking on the bottom of a compost box.

    What is Grass Jelly?

    One thing I hate are those ‘foams’ tey like to mess up food with in restaurants.
    I have had all sorts, from caviar foam to oyster foam.

    Snot.

    Grass Jelly? I don't know what it is. Lawn grass clippings version of soya sauce? I don't know.
    Close enough to bush craft, I hope some UK member can explain what it is.
    Comes in a can. Solid, wiggly cylinder of jelly in a dish.

    My compost box is 5' x 5' x 4' deep. There's more than 15 years of good things in there.
    The mess in the bottom is soot black and has the usual distinct compost box smell.
    Rinse a liquid from that, add gelatin = grass jelly? . . . . . . .. gross.

    Never again. Please resist the urge to buy some and try it.
    I am seasoning cast iron plates with lard at 300F in my oven.
    They ought to be almost non-stick when I'm done.

    The cream-mushroom-mustard glaze for the venison is ready to go.
    2lbs venison to stir-fry next.

    How hard is it to get a tag to whack some Muntjak in the UK?
    They have got to be fab food.

    Are not Muntjac quite small? I guess they stuff well.

    You could do a version of Turducken for X-mas

    Mugorall



    With a side of Brussel Sprout and Chestnut Foam and spirallized Pumpkin.

    BCUK members won't respond regarding Muntjac.
    We might as well give up. I'll bet they are really good to eat.
    All I want to do is eat well and barter for other food.
    I am pretty easy to please, here at home. I need farm eggs.

    Give them time to wake up. Remember the time difference.

    Those Muntjac ought to be really good to eat.
    Mentally going through a couple of game cook books!
    Small enough that a whole joint ought to be the way to cook.

    I have several 24hr clocks. North polar projections of the continents are quite distorted.
    Leftovers from my active ham radio days (VE7APC) . I see 5:30AM in the UK at the moment.

    Aside from the printed surface, the analog clock movement can't cost more than $5.00.
    So ICOM asks $100.00 for the stupid clock.
    Unlike all the plug-in digitals, I don't need to set it with the weekly power failures.

    The days are so short here at 53N right now.
    Sunset behind the west mountain range on the solstice will be 1:52PM.

    Wakey-wakey! Another fun day at the office!
    Just a nighttime wet snow blizzard again here.
    We are totally cut off again. We don't care.

    You're correct in your assumption that Muntjac are good to eat; in my view and that of many I know they are the best eating of the Deer species we have available to us here. They are also considered by those who know to be almost vermin and so it's pretty easy to get permission to hunt them as no landowner wants them on their ground, in the same way as nobody wants Boar around; mucho damage at low level.

    Got to agree with you on that... annoyingly though the current wife dislikes venison in any form or species so I can't have it at home :(

    Are they classified as an invasive species, being introduced from Asia?

    There's 101 game cook books here and 1,001 recipes for venison.
    Like here, I'll bet they cook in a flash due to low fat content. Yum.

    The pie was beautiful.

    Waitrose brand. One supermarket here import some Waitrose stuff. British airways fly it in. A life saver....

    We are now waiting for the Waitrose Smoked X-mas ham to come in. We do not like the north American hams, much to sweet for our uneducated European palates!
    :)
