Deer Season and what it means

I have had a lot of people ask me how to process deer and how to keep it from tasting gamey. I will eventually add a video but for now I will tell you the best I can.

After the deer is dressed out and quartered then you will need to put in a refrigerator or cooler. Make sure it stays good and cold for several days.

Once the meat has had time to rest then we start pulling out a little at a time and cutting into the choice of meats that we choose – normally steaks, cube meat, tenderloin, neck, and we even use the meat between the ribs for grind. We try not to waste any meat. Once meat is cut up then it goes into a sink of cold water with salt generously sprinkled over the top.

Allow meat to sit for 30 minutes to an hour. Drain the water and then package meat into freezer safe bags or vacuum seal it. We weigh out 2 lbs for all of our bags. We take the grind meat and grind it and use it for ground meat and to make sausage out of it. We also use hams to make deer jerky.

I have recipes to use for shoulders, necks, sausage and jerky. Stay tuned – I will be adding them later on.

We use this method on all of our wild game. Our entire family hunts and this allows our family to have meat all year round.

Pickled Quail Eggs

Well I made my first attempt at pickling quail eggs a couple of months ago and we finally decided to open a jar and check them out.

The overall vote at 100% was they were delicious! They were on the sweet side so next time I will add in a jalapeno. I had never even tried any pickled eggs in the past and for sure never canned them, so I was very happy with outcome. We had to do something with all the extra quail eggs that we have around here.

What is your experience with pickled quail eggs?

Deviled Quail Eggs

We had a family reunion today and so I decided to do something a little different. I had lots of extra quail eggs since I have shut the incubator down for a while so I decided on Deviled Quail Eggs. The hardest part of making them is getting the shell of the eggs and after that its super easy. You get an awesome reaction out of adults and children.

I love processing quail because they are so easy. Tonight I tried a different recipe. We hatch out our quail and process them ourselves. Super Easy!

This is my recipe – minis a few item plus a few.
Quail Ready for Butcher
Very easy to kill – just twist neck off – its                fast and quick.
You don’t even need a knife to peel skin off. Hint — Peel skin off while quail still warm – if they cool off then it doesn’t peel as easy.

 

Stuffing with mushroom mix.

 

I decided to add carrots and potatoes.
This is the final mix
The Final Product!!
Super Easy and Delicious!
