Rabbits good,so is ostrich, both need careful cooking though

Rabbit is best cooked slowly in a stew type reciepe rather than grilling or frying IMHO. Had it at many a scout camp and loved it.

Never tried Rabbit. Saw Rabbit Stifaso at a Tapas Restaurant in Halifax the other week but it wasn't on the early bird menu so I didn't have it!!!!! laugh.gif

I'm cooking xmas dinner and am dying to cook Goose or Quail but I don't think anyone will appreciate it as it's not what we usually have on xmas day.

We nearly had goose last year, they had frozen geese in Lidl, at a good price, but we chickened out and had turkey (geddit) It's all the fat you get with goose that worries me, and will there be enough, or it there's too much what to do with the residue. I even bought a gravy separator to deal with the fat, but didn't need it.

I used to work with a bloke who shot pheasant. I went for a weekend to Holland and brought back 400 duty free cigs and swapped him for a brace of pheasant. We cooked them wrapped in bacon, but they came out dry and tasteless, and full of lead shot. Never been tempted again.

I killed a pheasant cleanly once, with the front axle of a Transit tipper. Broke its neck with not a mark on it. It fed four of us. biggrin.gif

Sometimes you need to keep it simple.

Peel and chop some apples, chop and stone some plums, chuck 'em in a pan with some sugar, some cinnamon and some lemon juice and let them soften. Have a smell of it. Divine.

Butter, sugar, flour, make some crumble up.

All into a dish, into the oven. Wait till it browns, then eat the lot with custard.

Marvellous.

That's me.  I'm done.

I braised the breasts in cider with shallots and chorizo and some garlic.
served with minted new potatoes, very tasty, very sweet, very moist.

We did wonder whose foot that was. For a while we thought it might be Reginald's, but then he found his on the end of one of his legs so he was ruled out of the list of suspects.

Beers from last night.

Innis & Gunn 'Rum Cask' Oak Aged beer. Like the regular stuff, you wouldn't want too much of this at a time, but this new version is very fine indeed. Limited edition, apparently, so grab some while you can.

Brewdog 5am Saint. Clean, very hoppy taste. Nice, and not as alarmingly strong as many Brewdog beers.

Adnams Southwold Bitter. Ho hum. Okay, but nothing exceptional.

Theakston's Old Peculier. Is there any truly civilised being that doesn't know the joys of this one? Not the mad, magic stuff of the pre-takeover days, but still marvellous.

Did you find this.

Not sure about Glasgow geography but it certainly looks like some are south of the river at least.

Jeez, I'd forgotten all about this thread!

If you use "should of", "would of" or "could of", you are a moron.

I signed up to Virgin Wine bank after you mentioned it on here, it's seems to be a pretty good deal.

My 'personal wine advisor' does try and phone me a lot, but she's a jolly little thing with a husky voice so it's always nice to have a natter. She did put together a very nice case of oaky Spanish wines that I have been enjoying, it's just remembering to decant them a good few hours before drinking to enjoy them at their best.

As per Futtocks' post.

Last nights beer = 7 pints of Tennants Super Cold.

Tonights beer = hopefully something a little bit nicer.
