My Kombucha will be "harvested" today. I have the usual sourdoughs going. It was a busy week(end) last week(end), and all I really have new for you this week is deer. Yup, deer. I got a call from my friend on Saturday & asked if I was ready to learn how to cut up deer. He knew I'd been wanting to learn, so he was able to salvage 2 hindquarters, since the hunters managed to some how hang them wrong & mess up the front ends..... Yesterday I donned clothes that I don't care about & went & cut..... and peeled..... and cut..... and LEARNED how to process whitetail hindquarters. It was tedious to me, as I've never done it before, and I'm happy that he broke me in "easy." Next year I'll learn how to process a deer, beginning with breaking the whole animal down. I'm chuffed with all this!!!
This morning I fried up the leftovers for the chickens. It was scrap that landed on the counters from the meat griner, that I swiped into a baggie. I mixed it with some other leftovers & cut up 3 mini0pumpkins (from my own garden) for them. Boy do they LOVE pumpkins!!! And pumpkins (seeds) are a natural wormer for chickens, so they win. I win.
Out of my hindquarter I got 11+ pounds of steaks & stew meat (only one baggie was stew meat), and I got a smidge over 9 pounds of ground. A little over 20 pounds of meat went into my freezer today! YUM!!!!!
What's gone wild in YOUR kitchen this past week?
