The last meal before the end of hunting season was shared between my husband, Dave, myself and our two friends, Matt and Jim. We are all avid hunters and outdoor enthusiasts!
How special to sit down for a meal shared with friends knowing everything on the table was provided by each of us for a gourmet experience: purple and green cabbage as well as orange carrots from my organic garden, Bass and Perch from our pond, Dave, Jim and Matt went hunting and shot some green head, chubby, Mallards. Two of the Mallards were smoked for appetizers and two marinated and cooked on the grill for blackened duck.
Our menu included:
Smoked duck liver pate smoked over applewood and pecan shells with cranberry/ Grand Marnier jelly on sourdough flatbed crackers
Cream cheese rolled in crushed pistachios and honey which compliments the richness of the duck
Fried Bass and Perch with fresh lemon and tartar sauce
Homemade coleslaw and biscuits
Lemon meringue pie
If you are fortunate enough to hunt or fish you too can recreate this experience by following me, "High Prairie Life,” on YouTube, Facebook and Instagram for mouthing watering recipes! Happy New Year!
I knew when I booked things sounded pretty good. Upon arrival my expectations were exceeded five fold. Overwhelmingly peaceful setting allowed me to leave it all behind. Sat on the porch most evenings watching all the whitetail about 100 yards away. Breakfast is unbelievable. Terry is a true gourmet. I did not need to eat daily until 5 pm. We felt like family in a short time. The place is immaculate and I loved the natural swimming hole on site. "
