Game Consomme with deer dumplings
December 24th, 2018 | starter
A clear game soup with deer meat balls is a festive affair. Just right as a starter for Christmas! The broth is easy to prepare and can be cooked well before the festive season. Also, the deer dumplings can be prepared in advance and frozen. So to say, an appetizer that comes from the cold… for a relaxed Christmas for the cook.
There’s nothing better than a home-cooked broth, whether chicken, beef, fish, vegetables or, as today, game. A good broth is a basis to cook ragouts and gravy or soups. It is generally prepared in the same way, no matter on which basis you cook it: Bones, meat and vegetables are roasted in the oven, then poured with liquid, cooked for a very long time and strained. Voilà!
(Preheat the oven to 200° C)
(gives about 32 dumplings)

Heligoland “Knieper“ [Crab claw] @home
For many years I pestered my love, the captain, to travel to Heligoland [island in the North Sea] and eat „Knieper“. As a child of Cuxhaven I had so fantastic memories of that. Unfortunately we never managed to go there during the scanty holiday periods with all the other dates. What did I see yesterday on our weekly market at the market stall of our fish seller (you know, the one with the pulpo WhatsApp)? Knieper – incredible! Purchased, brought home and into the pot.read more
