xmas duck

Recommended Posts

ironman

had my first roasted duck today for a christmas eve dinner. Believe it or not...it was pretty darn tasty. I'd tell you what we did...but I have no idea. The girlfriend flexed her kitchen muscles and combined a few different recipes off of the web to make her own and it worked wonderful. Had two non-hunters that couldn't get enough. I'm not a fan of plucking duck but maybe I could suffer through one or two for a christmas tradition. How many days until opener? crazy.gif

We had baccon-wrapped mallard tidbits for may family Christmas dinner last Saturday, done on the grill next to skewered peppers, onions and mushrooms, with hand-parched wild rice on the side. Unbelievable. Usually picky teenagers were gobbling it up.

For our big sledding party, we had black bean goose chili with molases. It was by far the favorite of three types (over traditional brown bean venison chili and white bean chicken chili) everyone thought the goose was fillet mignon!

Anyone who says they don't like duck has never had our duck.

Next up: brazed goose in a dutch oven, or maybe duck stirfry with orange pepper sauce.... good thing it was a good year!!

I havent' had a roast duck in years.

BTW, it's 260 days to our duck opener north of the border!!

That goose and black bean chili sounds good, Wild Thing. At the risk of appearing rude or even greedy, could I ask if you'd be willing to share the recipe for that?

Here you go! Ann Myers famous black bean molases goose chili!

Sorry for the delay but we were up ice fishing!!

We've always used Canadas but it should work with specs or snows/blues i would think..

Black Bean Goose Chili

4 goose breasts, cut up 2 inch chunks or a bit smaller In a dutch oven, brown these three ingredients in 2T. oil, don't burn it.

1 onion chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 c. chicken broth

add this, cover, and braise in 325' oven for 3 hours till tender.

Remove meat to the chili pot and add the following, bring to boil then down to simmer for 30 mins.. or you may use a crock pot after the browning, simply add the remaining ingredients and slow cook on low for 6-8 hours).

1 red pepper chopped

1 yellow pepper chopped

2 cans of black beans, drained (not the usual brown beans)

1 can of whole kernal corn, drained (or may use 1 cup frozen corn) corn is optional

1 can of chopped tomatoes, NOT drained

2 T. chili powder

1 tsp. cumin

1-2 T. basil, your taste I use dried herbs, convenience.

2 T. cilantro

1/4 c. molasses

1/2 c. ketchup

salt and pepper to taste

This is a flavorfull but mild recipe that our 2 and 10 year old girls love. For more "heat" add some ceyene pepper and/or 1 small can of chopped green chilis.

Serve with sour cream, cheese, etc.. And corn bread muffins with honey!

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
