I am so making this when deer season starts and I fill my freezer back up with Alabama whitetail deer (no reindeer here)! I am a huge fan of cauliflower mash and mix it regularly with potatoes for the less than primal members of the family. They never notice! I’ve also done turnip, onion, and potato as the same cheat. Next rutabagas!! And without lingonberries, I’ll sub cranberries or maybe even raspberries. That kick of sweet/tart on the side sounds wonderful. Great recipe and video! It’s so cool to hear from folks from all over!

Thanks a lot! The combo of the tart berries with the meat really is sensational. I ration them out when I eat this so I get it with each bite! When I first made this with the rutabaga instead of potatoes I was shocked at just how similar the texture was. Rutabagas are also something a lot of people haven’t necessarily gone out of their way to try either so I hope this will give someone the nudge to try something new this week!

Nice to see a recipe from Finland! Especially since to cook is not a finn. One of the traditional ways to simmer the reindeer is with red wine in an oven. Btw, if you want to eat reindeer but without such a heavy side you can just heap reindeer on your plate and add quacamole and salsa. I promise you, this combo has no peers!
