Took out over 15 pounds of ground moose and a huge roast to make into Summer Sausage, Skinny Jimmies and Jerky. Took all day to process, but does my house ever smell nice. The summer sausage smoked in the smoker for 1.5 hours with hickory wood chips. Then it finished in the oven at 150 F for 8 hours. The Skinny Jimmies are hanging out in the fridge for 24 hours and then will find themselves on the smoker for 1.5 hours and finish in the oven for another 4. The Moose Jerky is happily marinating with spices in the fridge right now for 48 hours and will be in the dehydrator next. Tomorrow I am finishing the Strawberry Rhubarb Jam. Lots going on here.
Old fashioned snacks included jerky, sausage and dried meat. I love it. It's good for you...High protein, low calorie and zero carbs.
Yes....I saved all my shells from shrimp, lobster, and crab as well as scrap veggies (the ends and peelings of onions, carrots, etc. Since I bought some AK King Crab today at the store to make a grilled cheese,... I thought I had enough to bring the old shells out of the freezer and make stock. I will pressure can this stock and use it whenever I need to make gumbo, chowder, orzo or anything else that a seafood stock might enhance the recipe better than water.
I am making moose Skinny Jimmies (like Slim Jim sausage) tomorrow. I have used prepackaged cures and seasonings in the past and they work fine. But has anyone tried to make their own cure? If so, I sure could use the recipe. Thanks.
My mom and I are starting a contest. We are each selecting one recipe from The City Tavern Cookbook each month. They cannot be the same recipe and they cannot be something we have already made. We will make the recipe and then review it with each other. Anyone else have this book that wants to join us?
Mom died this year and Grandma's recipe of Custard Frosting (German Chocolate Cake frosting) calls for a can of each. At least in my area, they don't sell it by the cans anymore. Would anyone know how much was in a can of each. The nuts would have been pecans or walnuts.
