Paddock to Plate

Leonie and Dave it's time....

It's time to catch those pesky ducks, fling them over the block and chop their dam heads off! It's time for the two of you, to honor the traditions of many men and women all over the world, who raise their own meat, grab an axe and get the job done. You know what you have to do, you have been working on this for ages and you even got a PEKIN DRAKE especially for the job....



Sorry....just can't do it.....maybe next year eh?

There's not much meat on a duck anyway, it shrivels down to nothing. My sister-in-law once made duck a la ronge for a fancy dinner party for four. She had the orange sauce as there wasn't enough duck to go around.
So who would be doing the dressing a said ducks? My Mum use to dress chooks on the farm. I watched in facinated horror and vowed never to do it unless I was starving.

Same here. Mum used to chop their heads off, we peeled the skin because we couldn't quite work out how to pluck successfully and then only Mum was game enough to eat them. Poor sweet duckies. (Too much Disney in all of us!) Cherrie

hehe, I admit there was a mixture of horror and fascinated impressedness going on over here as i read. (which make no sense, me being a vego and all , but there's not much about me that makes sense.)
like the time, my cat caught a mouse, and eventually ate it.
very happy duckies have been spared though xo

I love ducks. I could eat a whole one.

LOL

If you ever get to the point of butchering skinning is easier than plucking.

The best duck I have ever had was 'duck tenders' with a Cajun orange sauce. Of course there isn't much Cajun I won't eat. :>)

Send them to Cath! LOL

Ummm I am pleased to see they are still enjoying themselves! LOok at it this way... they keep the insects down and grubs at bay! Good ha?

Kate said...

We've let our ducks go wild.
We still leave the food out but the buggers laid their eggs in the dam and made a huge mess.
Hope you sell yours.

pheeewwww...I was scared for a moment there!
(but you know, whoever buys them might be doing the exact same thing you couldn't..)

And they have scarpered!! LOL Plucking ducks is a real pain and really there is hardly any meat. Now you just have to catch them :-)
