Roast – Moose Rump

This was prepared on a very cold December day with a moose harvested one mile from the front door.  Just because we are rednecks doesn’t mean we don’t eat like kings.

The potatoes were grown in our garden.  The eggs in the Yorkshire pudding were produced by our chickens.  The raw milk in the mashed potatoes was sourced from a local farm.  Everything but the peas was sourced within 20 miles of the house.
