Venison Stew

    This is a great way to use that venison that is sure to be a hit with most anyone.

    1 cup water
    1 cup of onions cut into pieces
    2 lbs of venison cut into cubes
    1/4 cup flour
    2 red potatoes cut into pieces
    2 cups of celery pieces
    3 or 4 nice sized carrots cut into 1″pieces
    Salt,pepper,or seasoning mix to taste

    Place venison,water,and onions in crock pot and allow to cook on low over night. In morning dip out liquid and put into a bowl with enough ice cubes to cool. Add the flour and mix well then pour back into pot with venison. (If you want thicker broth add a bit more flour.) Add add other components and mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste. (I like cajun seasoning,but pick what you like.) Cook in crock pot on low for about four hours until vegetables are done.

    Potato Peeling Magic

    Saw an interesting video on how to peel a potato.  Starring “Mary Ann”from Gilligan’s Island (Dawn Wells) who shows us how to peel a potato almost as if by magic.  Just boil it for 15 minutes after scoring the peel with a knife.  Put the fresh boiled potato in ice water then rub the peel off with your fingers.  Pretty slick!  See link at:
