Well if Lola instigated this, then I guess I'm Ok with it. I did want to mention that one of the great things that I have enjoyed about all the Gatherings is having a wonderful group of men cooking delicious meals for me! Call me spoiled, I don't care. :D

Foxfire Brunswick Stew

2 pounds cooked ground beef
1 pound cooked ground pork or 2 pounds mild sausage
1 small cooked chicken chopped
3-4 diced potatoes
1 pint kernel corn
1 cup lima beans
2-3 diced carrots
2-3 chopped onion
1 pint tomatoes or tomato juice
Catsup
Chili powder
Salt
Black pepper & red pepper
French’s Worcestershire sauce
Chicken broth

Grill the meat. The vegetables may be either raw or canned. Mix everything together and simmer a long time. You can can it.

If you are planning to make a big batch to use a few days later keep the meat separate. With the meat in it is too easy to scorch when you reheat the stew.

I'll post this 1st 8)

Canned Deer Meat

Now I use all the left over pieces of hind quarter after I have cut the steaks out of that prime piece :D to make my canned deer meat. Also the front shoulder meat.
Now I clean out all gristle and cut into 1" square pieces
Fill jar leaving 1" head space
1 tablespoon salt
install lid (you know how, only 2 fingers tight)
Pressure cook @ 10psi for 90 minutes
Let pressure fall naturally if not the liquid in the jar from the meat will come out I have found.
After psi is gone remove and let cool
Set in pantry on shelf and have for anytime you are ready for a dish that requires meat!

One of my favorites is CURRY!! Yep, working overseas for so many years curry is one of my favorites.... DeerTips Rice and gravy can be ready in 20 minutes! Deer Meat Stroganoff can also be ready in under 30. It's soooooo tender! Pour off wader and put on light bread and mayo! MMM MM MMMM!!!!!!

Thanks to the guys who have posted recipes. Peggy Larkin approached me at the gathering and suggested we put together a recipe book. I thought it was a spendid idea since food is becoming an additional highlight of the gatherings. I will get all the recipes together and make some attempt at a "book" to be available next year. I do need more recipes. Ken, I need your Low Country Boil. Someone brings some really good corn bread that is a big hit. I need Keith's receipe for "Grog". Even if you haven't brought it to a gathering but make a really great dish you want to share...please post it. I would love to have a great collection of recipes from all of the regions we have represented. Please indulge me and start posting.

Lola, I ain't even brought myself to a Gathering yet but when we go fishing or just camp'n I do a lot of dutch oven cook'n. One dish everyone ALWAYS enjoys is the Southern Breaky.

40 Hot Coals
14" Dutch Oven
1 1/2 Doz Eggs
1 lb colby jack cheese grated
1 1/2 lb breakfast sausage (I used deer saus)
6 med taters grated (enough to make about 1" coverage in bottom of DO)
Olive Orl
Salt and Pepper ta taste

Start coals and let them get nice and white all over then put in pile. Set the 14" DO on coals and add some orl in it. Meanwhile have a helper grating cheese and taters. Brown sausage till nice and crispy then remove. Add taters and brown into hashbrowns. Once hashbrowns are ready put a layer of cheese, then sausage. Beat the eggs up real good and put on top then the rest of the cheese. Put lid on and move most of the coals to the top.

Now when cook'n with a DO you must rotate the Oven to the right 1/4 turn and then the lid to the left 1/4 turn every 5 to 10 minutes depending on how hot it's cooking so that the heat is kept even. As it cooks you may want to remove the coals from the bottom as it will burn if it gets too hot. Cook till eggs are done and serve with the sour dough biscuits ya made in teh 12" oven. :-)

MMM MMM GOOD!!!!!
