Debris Cooked

Unfortunately, it was not that great. Also, I am exhausted. So I will post pics and description tomorrow.

I just want to say that it is totally random that Weight Watchers has a points value for whale liver, but none for goat.

Debris postponed

After running around after the cows in the cold, I am just too tired to try my recipe tonight. Fortunately, I have a wonderful husband who is making me twice-baked potatoes instead. So I am relaxing after a nice hot bath with a bottle of Can Blau 2007 while someone else cooks me dinner. I'll give you the results of my debris tomorrow.

In the meantime, we had our first calf born on the farm today, and he is the spitting image of his daddy. We had to pull him, but he came out fine. I forgot my camera today, but there should be pics tomorrow.

Time for Dinner

We harvested three goats today - one for a customer and two for me. I am a big fan of what around here we call the debris. That's the liver, the heart, the kidneys, and the other random organs that my processor gives me that I have no clue about. My mother is from Kansas, and apparently her mother never touched stuff like this. So I am having to figure it out on my own. I am going to try this recipe for the liver and the heart.

But it calls for on overnight marinade, which I am already cheating on by using red wine instead of vinegar. But, for tonight, I saved myself one liver lobe, which I cooked on medium heat for about 10 mins, covered in Tony's, turned the heat up to high for a min and a half, and ate with my fingers.

Here it is cooking:

Here it is right before I pop it into my mouth:
