Did you know that moose are the largest member of the deer family? 🦌🇨🇦 We have them all over Canada, and you know what? They taste really great! 👌 If you’re lucky enough to know a hunter (or be one yourself) and ever get the opportunity to try moose – you should! They taste a lot like their habitat – which may sound weird until you try a piece. The flavor is reminiscent of the damp, rich muskiness of the woods. Okay that sounded less gross in my head. 🤣🤷🏻♀️ We love preparing moose hot and fast on the @webergrillsca Summit and serving it with homemade gnocchi. When we were little, Maddie and I used to stand in our Nonna’s back porch and make gnocchi until our hands were sore. If we didn’t roll them just right, she’d give our hands a little smack and make us redo them. I think in 2019 one may argue that this experience was breaking all kinds of child labour laws, but we just saw it as summers well spent learning a new skill. 🥰 We stood there for hours, rolling each piece carefully over a big piece of floured plywood set atop her deep freezer. Then we’d enjoy our hard work with a big bowl of gnocchi in fresh tomato sauce from her garden with basil and a mountain of cheese. 🍝🤤👌
Have you tried moose meat before? What did you think?
To make the PERFECT gnocchi – put 4 peeled, cooked, small yellow potatoes through a ricer, and add 1 cup of flour, ½ cup semolina flour, and 2 eggs. Gently combine, roll into long logs, cut into bite sized pieces, and boil until they float to the surface! You can get all fancy by rolling them over fork tines or a gnocchi board for the lines, but even on their own they’re small pillows of heaven! Enjoy! Love, M&K xo
