Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Venison stew with dried cherries

    • Christine on April 02, 2016

      My first time trying venison and this was a really excellent introduction. I did make some changes though since I was making do with what I had on hand -- I omitted the celery, orange, and juniper berries; and substituted chicken broth for beef broth, shallots for onions, and apple juice for brandy. (I didn't have any brandy and found this non-alcoholic substitution suggestion online.) I made 1/3 of this recipe to serve 3 people vs. the larger group the recipe was intended for. All the ingredients fit well into my 3.5 quart slow cooker. I didn't have quite enough potatoes and would definitely use the full amount next time. For the wine, I used a Merlot. I also omitted the balsamic vinegar accidentally as it was to be added at the very end and I forgot. Clearly, this is a pretty flexible recipe -- even with ingredients missing and others changed, it came out really well. My Dad went from super skeptical due to a previous bad experience with venison to declaring it really good!

  • Apple crumble with maple crème fraîche

    • Nancith on April 17, 2016

      This was tastier than expected, although next time, I will use less sugar, as it seemed overly sweet. The topping, except for a small section, was surprisingly crunchy and nicely textured for having been cooked in a slow cooker. Did not have crème fraîche so I used light sour cream, a little buttermilk plus the maple syrup, which while being a little soupy, worked out quite well as the topping.

  • Carrots glazed with marmalade, brown sugar, and butter

    • Nancith on December 27, 2019

      Flavor is good with these carrots, & they went over well with a holiday crowd, but they were not glazed after cooking; they were surrounded by a very watery liquid, which was not visually appealing. Substituted apricot preserves for more than half the orange marmalade for taste preference, but have made these before w/ all marmalade with same watery result.
