The other night we had just finished supper and we were in the middle of cleaning up the kitchen, when the door bell rang out. It was my neighbor; she had walked over from her place with a large plastic grocery bag, and a lovely smile. We answered the door and starting chatting for a few minutes and she mentioned the word moose in her first few lines, she did not even have to finish her sentence and I called out from the kitchen and said “Yes”. We all began to laugh really loud, I knew it was an offering and boy was I happy. Her brother had harvested a moose this season and she gave us the heart, it was big.

We were extremely appreciative and thanked her several times and then off she went. I felt bad, I could not let her go back empty-handed, so I went through my freezer and grabbed one of the jars of Canada Goose rilliettes we had made. Within minutes, I was on her door step and this time it was my turn to ring her door bell. When the door opened, she smiled and said “I knew it was you” and I gave her the jar and told her what it was.

It is an incredibly good feeling to give and seeing the other persons reaction, in addition when it is wild game you have harvested it makes it that much more special and I am sure this relationship will allow us both to eat well and appreciate natures gift.

Now let us try to find a recipe!
