Smoked Duck Pate

Butcher 3 birds.
Rub birds with salt, sugar and olive oil.
Hot smoke them with double sawdust.
Place them in a huge pressure cooker submerged in water.
Chop and add a full clove of garlic, onion and a tablespoon of peppercorns.
Cook them for a few hours until the meat falls from the bones.
Cool and remove the bones.
Reboil and mash well or machine-blend gently.
Scoop out and press into loaf molds.
Chill overnight and serve.
Bon Appetite!

And now you have a palatable use for old chooks. Fair dinkum you would not know the difference.

  2. Hehe...I hate to waste the old chooks. It seems sacrilegious to kill and bury them when, with the right preparation, they can taste great.
    Blue cheese would make a very nice accompaniment with some fresh fruit and home-made crackers.
