My dear friend over at Treasure's From a Shoebox had asked me how I made my blog button, maybe most of you already know how. But just in case you don't, I found a great tutorial at this blog site Oikology 101. I had googled and searched for other tutorials and this was by far the easiest one I found. If you are a follower of Treasure's From a Shoebox, make sure you get her new button!
Are you married to a deer hunter? Or do you and your family love deer meat? I have a GREAT recipe for Venison bologna that is easy to make and so delicious. I have made it twice, and it gets eaten so quickly I wonder if I should go into business and market the stuff for a profit haha.
Tastes great with cheese and crackers!
4 lbs of deer burger (or hamburger or elk meat, just make sure it's lean)
1/4 cup tender quick salt
Mix above ingredients and let stand overnight in the refrigerator.
Next day add:
1 cup brown sugar (more or less according to your preference)
2 or 3 tablespoons Liquid Smoke
1 1/2 tablespoon Pepper
2 tablespoon Mustard Seed
1 tablespoon of both Onion and Garlic powder (optional) I do both
Mix together and shape into 4 rolls, 1 pound each. Bake for 2 hours at 250. Turn every 30 minutes while baking.
I found the Tender quick Salt at our local Bulk Foods store with the jerky making supplies.
