RIVERTON, Wyo. (Nov. 21, 2016) — Do you love waterfowl hunting but aren’t a fan of eating your harvest? Don’t blame the birds. It is all in the preparation. Chef Scott Leysath says that with Hi Mountain Seasonings Brines, it’s easy to transform your birds from a tough, gamey meal into a succulent mouthwatering dish that will have folks begging for more.
Chef Leysath, host of “The Sporting Chef” show on the Sportsman Channel, has released a new YouTube Video in which he explains why he will not prepare wild duck or goose before first soaking them in a Hi Mountain Seasonings Poultry Brine. According to Leysath, one of the biggest mistakes that people make is to not remove the blood from their harvested game birds.
“They will cook a whole bird or its parts that are full of unsavory flavors that come from the blood,” Leysath said, describing his motivation to create the video. “These unwanted flavors leach out while cooking. Any sauce that may be added to the skillet while cooking competes with the blood flavor, and that’s not a good thing.”
By removing the excess blood with a brine mixture before cooking, the color of the meat changes; it will go from a dark livery color to a much lighter, more universally accepted shade of pink. The Hi Mountain Seasonings Game Bird & Poultry Brine and the Brown Sugar Brine are easy to use—just add cold water— and they will ensure that the ducks and geese not only look good, but also will have much milder flavors. Rather than masking the wonderful flavors of waterfowl, these specially created brines enhance them.
Once the meat is brined, simply pat dry, and drop into a hot skillet with your favorite seasonings or sauces. The result will be a palate-pleasing dish that will have you yearning to return to the field for more.
