Your Festive Food

I've no interest in Xmas but will have Aylesbury duck next Sunday for my eldest's 18th. Just the 4 of us - me and my 3 kids.

 

On Hogmanay (New Year's Eve) I've ordered 3 hare and will pan-fry the fillets and make soup/stock from the rest.  There will be 7 of us - my squeeze and her girls.

 

Fireworks at midnight.

 

So what are LinC members feasting on over the festive?  When?  Who is cooking?  Who will be in your company?  Any culinary highlights?

Baked ham for the main, I will be the cook, my wife and two kids ,, 11 and 3 ,, along with one or two people we know that would otherwise be alone, in Dysart Queensland Australia..

I love ham.  Is that a common Xmas meal in Oz?

I love rabbit my weans feast on it especially in a paella....did we have this conversation before?  Roger maybe?

 

Hare (over here) is much harder to get hold of.  I can easily get a skinned rabbit for £5 pair and when I train my ex's dog we can go shooting again and get it for free.

yeah we may of talked about this before

 

one of the largest if not the largest rabbit producers is in arkansas pel-freez

and by chance when i couldn't find any in the stores i contacted them and found they were willing to sell direct to the public by the case..

 

we like it stewed, roasted, fried like chicken.. really any way it can be prepared

So do you 'over there' have commercial rabbit producers?  For meat?  Not that it's a bad thing.'Over here' All the rabbits you'd see in (only a few) butchers' shops are wild rabbits either shot or netted using ferrets.

 

Almost no shops would sell hare (jack rabbit?) and to get mine I'd either have to know a local gamekeeper or a specialst dealer.

yeah that's what pel freez is a commercial rabbit meat producer..

 

my brother in the past lived in good places to hunt and trap them so we use to get some from him that way also

 

i'm sure the butchers around here have them.. but i've never looked as of yet

you take a nice big ham.. and basically use a band saw to cut it through the bone in to steaks.. fry em up or sometimes we grill them and you get a nice big piece of ham and a little marrow as a bonus

 

not my pic just grabbed on off the web
