Wild game and birds as well as fish were mainstays of our grandparents. They were often dependant on a “good hunt” to ensure they had enough food to get them through the winter. It was guaranteed that the hunters made sure nothing was wasted. That meant everything edible, the hides and horns were brought home. It is a shame that our grandparents probably ate more of what Mother Nature provided than most people get to see in the wilds, today. Eating wild game, for most is only a memory; however, there are still those who enjoy the hunt and the bounty it provides.
At Comfy Country Creations, we hope this section will bring back memories and allow your taste buds to experience new ones.
