It's officially soup season! This Woodchuck Soup comes together with beans, carrots, and onions but you can use any fall garden ingredients. I like using our garden to fill in the soup with the critter that is always trying to steal them; it feels very balanced. Hunting and homesteading go hand in hand, and result in a warm and delicious soup!
Katsu is a staple of Japanese bento box lunches and is best described as a Japanese version of German schnitzel. Katsu means “cutlet” in Japanese. While chicken is the most commonly used protein, you can pretty much coat and fry any kind of meat in Panko breadcrumbs, including wild game and fish. This Sharp-tailed Grouse Katsu with Japanese Kinpira, is served with a salty and sweet burdock root salad.
Forget the take-out and whip up a batch of these Squirrel Egg Rolls with Wild Grape Sweet & Sour Sauce at home! The start of squirrel season also usually lines up with flushes of all kinds of wild mushrooms in the Midwest. This recipe uses wild foraged Hen of the Woods and home fermented kraut.
This recipe for Sweet Bourbon Bunny with it's sticky sweet bourbon sauce is inspired by one I had in the home of a south Florida game warden. One of my most vivid memories from that trip was enjoying that bourbon sauce, served with smoked sausage and Jack Daniels.
This salty & sweet Pistachio and Chicharrón Crusted Duck Breast packs a flavor punch with a special glaze of gochujang paste and Bulliet Rye Bourbon. Your taste buds will be so happy don't be surprised if you break out your duck calls and do a feeding chuckle right there at the dinner table!
