One of the guys who works in my husband's dept is into hunting and fishing in a big way. We got talking one day and I told him how until I was 8 and we moved further south my father used his vacation time to go hunting and fishing with his family. He enjoyed it but as a hillbilly he took it seriously and felt he was providing good meat for his family. So, we ate everything he brought home. I remember him being really mad when my mother cut him off from driving 7 hours home with 2 deer slung over the car because it was a new Oldsmobile that my mother treated better than her kids. He had to bring the deer home packed up in a cooler. Which I guess ruined the experience for my father. Nothing macho about cut up venison in the trunk. Anyhow, the point is, I ate this stuff as a child and have been told I liked it. I was a picky eater as a kid. The guy hands my husband a good sized grocery bag full of venison; sausages, ground venison, roasts. I guess he's excited to know somebody who likes this stuff. I've never cooked it. But, my husband isn't a turkey lover. We usually get a turkey breast for me and a prime rib roast for him. And then I make tourtiere some years. I'm thinking of cooking up a venison roast for Xmas. Nothing fancy or complicated. As I'm looking for recipes online, it looks like you're best to use a crockpot, lots of veg and some kind of sauce to keep it moist. I'm a huge crockpot fan so that's fine with me. I'll let you guys know how it turns out.
