the eric update - day 544: odin's epicurean adventures! venison summer sausage.

since i'm not a buckless yooper we have lots of opportunities for new and interesting wild game epicurean adventures for odin. first off, we thought we'd try a venison summer sausage recipe that's quickly become a family favorite. it takes three days to cure properly so we haven't had a chance to taste it, but we can smell it; if you've ever smelled raw venison, you'll know what i'm talking about :-)

10 lbs venison burger
10 tsp curing salt / tender quick by morton
5 tsp mustard seed
7 tsp cracked peppercorn
7 tsp garlic salt
4 tsp hickory smoke salt by mccormick
7 tsp seasoning salt

in a large container, combine venison with all the above spices. knead for 3 days, on the 3rd night, shape into small loaves.

place on baking sheets in a 180 degree oven for 12-14 hours. let them cool and wrap in wax paper and then tin foil.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
