1 Upper jawbone of a moose

1 tb Mixed pickling spice
1 ts Salt
1/2 ts Pepper
1/4 c Vinegar


Cut the upper jaw bone of the moose just below the eyes.

Place in a large kettle of scalding water and boil for 45 minutes.

Remove and chill in cold water.

Pull out all the hairs - these will have been loosened by the boiling and should come out easily ( like plucking a duck).

Wash thoroughly until no hairs remain.

Place the nose in a kettle and cover with fresh water.

Add onion, garlic, spices and vinegar

Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until the meat is tender. Let cool overnight in the liquid.

When cool, take the meat out of the broth, and remove and discard the bones and the cartilage. You will have two kinds of meat, white meat from the bulb of the nose, and thin strips of dark meat from along the bones and jowls.

Slice the meat thinly and alternate layers of white and dark meat in a loaf pan.

Reheat the broth to boiling, then pour the broth over the meat in the loaf pan.

Let cool until jelly has set. Slice and serve cold. Just Game Recipes is located at www.justgamerecipes.com









Fried Muskrat and Gravy

Put some regular all-purpose flour in a paper bag, add some salt and black pepper, then add the pieces of rat and shake to cover. Let the meat sit for a few minutes while you heat some oil in a skillet to moderately hot, then fry it until crispy brown and well cooked.

When the meat is finished cooking, remove the meat and drain all but 1-2 tablespoons of oil from the pan. Add 1-2 tablespoons of flour to the pan and cook, stirring constantly, until the flour begins to brown a bit. Then add one cup of milk and simmer until the gravy is thickened to suit you, salt to taste, and serve.

Serve with some sourdough bisquits, and what more could you want? :-)

Most any recipe you would use for rabbit would work just fine. A favorite of mine is to fix the rabbit/rat as above, then take all the meat out of the skillet and put it into a cassarole dish. Add a little of the oil from the skillet, a little water, cover and bake for 2 hours at moderate heat. Remove the top and cook another 30 minutes to crisp it up a bit, and it's done. The meat will fall off the bones, and you will be shy about sharing it with your buddies.

I suppose recipes like the jellied moose are sort of like all the jokes we Scots have to put up with re haggis! No truth in them, but they make people smile.

LOL thanks all, appreciate the offers to help. Am looking for appetizers that Robyn may be familiar with. Not trying to outdo her family and friends, just hoping to help her get over the home sick, what have I done feeling she will probably have after leaving home for another country. We all already love her and have from the day we met her and we want to make her feel welcome and a part of the family as quickly as possible. Any ideas would sure be welcome. :)

i'd kind of like to try haggis, but i heard you can't get lungs here in the US. i've heard it's actually pretty delicious.

American friends who are very into their 'Scots heritage' tell me that they can get US-made haggis, but that much of that stuff is tinned.... I tried it once whilst in the US... that is seriously HORRID stuff!

Real haggis is very tasty. During the winter, we eat it probably once a fortnight. But I notice in hotels that it is a staple for breakfast - I'm sure it's there just so the tourists can say they've 'tried' it! We certainly don't eat it for breakfast in my family Mind you, I can't STAND black pudding (blood sausage) - even MY strong disposition falters sometimes....

I wasn't offended at all. I just wanted to be sure you realized that those things were FAR from typical fare. You wouldn't BELIEVE some of the things I have had people tell me that Canadians do. Sorry if I led you to believe I was annoyed, I wasn't.

Since garnish is from Eastern Canada I think she will likely have better ideas than I will. I am from out West. I'll still be chiming in though.
