The Compassionate Hunter's Guidebook
Hunting from the Heart
Paperback ISBN: 0865717702
Wild meat, hunted in a responsible way, is one of the most healthful, sustainable foods possible. Depending on how it is done, hunting can be as local, intimate, and humane as it gets. And aside from this, it demands the hunter enter a world of awareness, wildness, life, and death that as a culture we have forgotten. The Compassionate Hunter’s Guidebook is a guide for those that come to the act of hunting with pure intentions, motivated by a desire for healthy food that comes directly from the land where they live. This practical manual suggests that hunting is not a "sport" and the animals whose lives are taken are not "game." It combines a deep, philosophical exploration of the ethics of killing with detailed instructions on every step of the process including: - Understanding your prey - Tools, techniques, and preparation - The act of the hunt - From forest to table?processing, preserving, and preparing your kill A unique and comprehensive, fully illustrated guide to the complexity, ethics, and spirit of the hunt, The Compassionate Hunter's Guidebook is a must-read for beginning and experienced hunters alike. It will appeal to anyone who wishes to delve more deeply into the complex, humbling, and ultimately profound reality of our relationship with the food that nourishes us. Miles Olson has spent the past decade immersed in learning and practicing earth skills. The author of Unlearn, Rewild, his experiences living on the land have made him an expert on rewilding.
Eggs & Poultry
Made at Home
Paperback ISBN: 1770850783
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. A guide to raising chickens, ducks, geese and turkeys, with 27 recipes. Backyard poultry have gained popularity in recent years as some municipalities loosen regulations to allow homeowners to keep coops. Raising poultry is a sustainable activity, which in relatively little space produces fresh eggs and meat. Eggs and Poultry is organized in five sections. The first four cover everything needed to successfully keep the most popular types of poultry: chickens, ducks, geese and turkeys. It discusses the pros and cons of each and provides all the information needed to start out, including building a shelter, planning runs and ponds, dealing with pests and problems, laying and breeding, incubating and hatching, slaughter, and plucking and drawing. Butcher skills are also illustrated. The 80-page recipe section explains the essentials of cooking with eggs and poultry: butcher skills, such as deboning a chicken; cooking methods, such as coddling eggs; and features 27 delicious dishes. They include Eggs Benedict, Smoked Eggs with Halloumi, Turkey Pie, Crispy Duck with Pancakes, Southwestern Fried Chicken, Confit Duck with Caramelized Orange and Fennel Salad, Lemon Pepper Chicken Nuggets, The Ultimate Turkey Burger and Goose Livers with Cider.

12 Bones Smokehouse
A Mountain BBQ Cookbook
Hardcover ISBN: 0760347263
For lovers of the 12 Bones restaurant - including President Obama - as well as fans of progressive 'cue, 12 Bones Smokehouse includes signature recipes and techniques for ribs, pulled pork, and all the fixin's. When 12 Bones Smokehouse opened Asheville, North Carolina, in the early 2000s, many doubted that it would succeed. The food wasn't 100-percent traditional or 100-percent true to Carolina barbecue's heritage. A decade later, 12 Bones has become a local institution that rivals the Biltmore Estate in popularity. In fact, it's 12 Bones alone that has been on President Obama's itinerary all three times he's passed through Asheville. 12 Bones Smokehouse is true to the spirit of the place. Everything is made from scratch, the meats are smoked long and slow over select hardwoods, and cornbread is not optional. Simple ingredients and lots of care make the best food. This cookbook includes over 60 recipes, ranging from beet salad to smoky collards to sauces, rubs, and dessert, built for the modern palate - blueberry-chipotle, pineapple, and brown sugar and spice are just a few of the rib flavors. Traditional sauces, like Carolina vinegar, are punched up with fresh jalapeno and cilantro. Ribs, pork, bacon, beef, and turkey recipes abound, but 12 Bones Smokehouse is also uniquely vegetarian-friendly. From sides that have a symbiotic relationship with meat (potato salad with potatoes that never touch meat but benefit from the smoking process) to completely vegetarian creations (jalepeno cheddar grits, anyone?), there's something for diners of every stripe - vegetarian or carnivore.
