Curing & Smoking
Made at Home
Paperback ISBN: 1770850775
A new series for living the good life! Made At Home This exciting series comes from the father-and-son team Dick and James Strawbridge, who live "the good life" on their small acreage. In Made At Home they share the knowledge and experience gained over years of producing an abundance of good things to eat and drink: organic fruits and vegetables eaten, juiced, fermented and preserved; pigs smoked for ham, sausages, salamis and bacon; a mixed flock of birds used for eggs and eating; and bees for honey, to name a few. It's an enviable lifestyle driven by a desire to eat well every day. It is also a lifestyle that does not require a lot of space. Made At Home contains numerous adaptations to urban and suburban life. Plants are grown in small lots and pots, chickens are kept in backyard pens, and meat items, such as sausages, are smoked in the backyard. Proof positive that anyone can live the good life. Of all the Made At Home titles, perhaps this one speaks loudest to the popularity of home-grown foods. The smoked bacon, salamis and heady cheeses we love are prime candidates for handcrafted taste. Curing and Smoking demonstrates how simple it is to use the magic of smoke to create wonderfully aromatic foods with distinctive flavors. The book follows the curing and smoking processes beginning to end, from creating a purpose-made pantry to storage. Topics include drying, curing, hot smoking, cold smoking, indoor smoking, drying and wrapping, and vacuum packing. Foods are not limited to meats and cheeses, but include fruits and vegetables, fish, ciders, seafood. Even eggs can be smoked or cured. Original and delicious recipes offer up such delights as jams and jellies, hot-smoked oysters, and fresh tomato salsa. Curing and Smoking is ideal for adventurous cooks, modern pioneers, and all food crafters.

The Hunter's Haunch
What You Don't Know About Deer and Venison That Will Change the Way You Cook
Hardcover ISBN: 1629146617
A new way to look at hunting and deer meat that anyone who owns a venison cookbook must read! Is a doe better eating than a buck? Is hanging really necessary? Why can’t venison be aged? Will soaking in milk make that gamy taste go away? The Hunter’s Haunch provides straightforward and fascinating answers for these and other questions that every hunter-cook has faced, delving into myths, folklore, hunting history, and modern culinary science in order to explain why certain techniques still work and others don’t. Many wild game cookbooks offer recipes for venison chili, venison burgers, venison sausage, and other solutions that make tough and gamy meat edible. By contrast, The Hunter’s Haunch aims to rethink the entire process so that rescuing tough meat never becomes necessary in the first place. Focusing on the relationship of the hunt to the rhythms of nature, The Hunter’s Haunch examines the deer as a living creature in the wild, showing how the skills of the hunter affect its treatment in the kitchen, and ultimately how the venison tastes when served at the table. Covering the history of deer hunting, practical lessons in game anatomy, and indispensable tips for dressing and prep, The Hunter’s Haunch is an essential read for anyone who hopes to transform their quarry into the best possible venison.
