“This is from a cool cookbook called "The Washington Cookbook" which features recipes collected from Washington state and published in 1982. From the wild game chapter, this is posted in response to a request. Not one I have tried, but I am happy to up the number of wild game recipes on zaar! The original recipe suggests that the flavor of this dish is enhanced by vegetables and that tiny boiled carrots are a good accompaniment. It also recommends that a bed of wild rice is quite nice. Actually, the ingredient list does not include carrot but the original directions say to sauté them along with the celery and onion. So if you try it let me know how it goes and I'll make adjustments!”
