    I like rabbit but it's a bit too lean to eat very often for me.

And yes i try to get books from england if i can instead of america coz of the postage thing too.
    I am so jealous of such an abundance of venison.

    So far today I have had some pate' and labne kefir cheese for breakfast but now I really don't reel like eating. I'm dealing with a bit of a plumbing disaster. There is nothing like the scent of backed up sewer water in the house to kill your appetite.

    I killed some wild cottontails while at my brothers house in TN and it's divine.

    Yeah, it's not pretty. If I weren't waiting for the plumber, I'd go out and get a steak. But I would have to take a shower first since I stink too. Good times. I can't wait to sell this house.

    it's one of those it never rains, it pours type situations as i limp along normally on stuff all venison. since i dont do the farmed stuff, i have to make do with what i can get. then i get 2 whole deers in as many months! having acquired 1/4 cow before, i will say venison is a much better animal. nicer cuts and a lot less nebulous mince you have to make stuff with to disguise.

    i went for a snorkel and got 4 sea urchins and a coupla big abalone today so choices abound! right now i am slow roasting the venison shanks as i need the room in the freezer and my fave game recipe website said you would be eyeing them up before the backstraps once you'd eaten properly cooked shanks. i just had a peek and i am not convinced yet.

    re: rabbit. that is why i do it buttered in curry with lots of cream. beats the ass off chicken any day. you could also make any of those cream and chicken dishes with it too.

    i hate plumbing dramas. best of luck with it.

    I think you missed my train of thought.

    Probably for the best since it was none too pretty itself.

    I LOVE shanks!
    Slow braise them with lovely liquid and flavor-y things and you will too.

    I love lamb shanks. I can see how venison shanks would be good too if cooked low and slow enough. Yes, rabbit needs some form of fat added or else you get rabbit starvation.

    Oh! You thought I was talking about the anatomical kind of plumbing? Let's not even go there.

    I do mine in the crockpot until they are falling off the bone tender.

    i am sitting here drumming my fingers waiting for them to fall off the bone lol prob an hour to go. i used venison broth too.
    Braised Venison Shank Recipe with Garlic | Hunter Angler Gardener Cook these sorts of things are good as i can give the kids mashed potatoes and veges with them and we are all happy. no me sitting there eating a raw steak while they have pizza.

    my cat always eats the head of the rabbit first. all the fat is in the brain. she eats all the bones too and only ever leaves the colon.
