Christmas Dinner

December 25, 2011

Christmas Dinner
Ah, Christmas. “On Dasher, on Dancer, on Prancer, on Vixen.” On the table, that is. What could be a more perfect Christmas dinner than venison? Pudding for “afters,” of course.

In North America, wild reindeer are called “caribou.” Whatever you call deer, moose, or elk, their meat is called “venison.” Reindeer are raised for meat in Finland, Russia, and other cold places. North American caribou meat producers include Canada’s Kivalliq Arctic Foods. Reindeer farms in Alaska and Michigan harvest meat, but most reindeer farms in the Lower 48 rent out their beasts for holiday displays and don’t send them to Santa’s abattoir.

Have a Merry, meaty Christmas.

Sarah Palin’s Hamburger on the Hoof

December 13, 2010

Sarah Palin's Hamburger on the Hoof

Here’s a wild game recipe from former Temp-Governor Sarah Palin: Caribou Hamburger. You know it’s fresh because you start grinding it while the animal is still alive. Here’s how:

Take one free-range, fresh and local Alaska caribou. Instead of downing it with one or two well-placed high-powered rifle shots, shred it with about five rounds. Burger meat the “Caribou Barbie” way. 

Oh, wait. She missed four out of five shots. The feat of arms is featured on her cable TV  show on the Learning Channel. The show really was educational. We learned the truth about Sarah Palin The Mighty Hunter, anyway.

 Update:  “Sarah Palin succeeded in doing the impossible this week … when she faced her biggest wildlife challenge to date — Kate Gosselin.” More from Kirkland Hamill here.
