Nows the Time to Enjoy Falls Harvest!

Now is the time to sit back and enjoy the “fruits” of the harvest over these last several months.  Two deer in the freezer would seem like a lot of good quality meat for the winter, but so many of my friends and family enjoy venison it goes pretty fast.  Over the holidays is always a good time to prepare some delicious venison for family, and friends, and that is just what I did.

I decided to do a venison roast (neck) and then make barbecue sandwiches out of that.  I put the big roast in a crock pot (on high) for most of the day.  I added spices, salt, ground pepper, lawry’s seasoned salt, and a touch of barbeque sauce to the pot and waited till the meat fell off the bone!  I then let it cool down some and broke the meat up in smaller pieces and discarded any fat!  I was the ready to add my “sweet baby back ribs” sauce, and it was ready for a bun!  This is well received by anyone who enjoys barbeque sandwiches, chips, and a soft drink!

I also prepared venison meatballs which I did in the oven at 325 degrees.  Four (4) pounds of meat made about 50 good sized meatballs.  I added onion, salt, pepper, 2 eggs, lawry’s seasoning, parsley, and a little catsup, and mixed it all up before rolling into meatballs!  The were baked for about 35-40 minutes and then put in a crock pot with mushroom sauce.  The crock pot would then be heated before serving.  My mom loves this and two “newbe’s” gave them a try with a “thumbs up!”

It’s good to share “wild game” with loved ones including non hunters and those that don’t get a chance to experience natures unpolluted bounty!  It’s a “win-win” situation for all partakers of this delicious fare!
