Roe fillet with black nuts

Our forester brought us meat from the fawn. And we finally wanted to try the black walnuts. A product that we did not even know before. I took notice of it on Instagram and was very curious. The combination deer and black nut is simply stunning!

The black walnut is not exotic, but a walnut grown and refined in Germany. In a very complex process, unripe walnuts are processed over several weeks with water and sugar syrup and then stored for about half a year. I cannot help advertising for the company Kauzenberg in Bietigheim-Bissingen in Baden-Württemberg. It is a small family business that sells the black nuts online in dried form or in jars in syrup. A really exciting product the Weipprecht family from Kauzenberg is manufacturing.

By the way: The black nut syrup is ideal for salad dressings. This results in a unique flavor for all winter salads!

The recipe for the game stock used in the recipe can be found here.

BBQ potatoes

Finally, a side dish that also works on the grill: Salsa Verde Potatoes replace the classic grill companion, the French bread. Anchovies, capers and olives give great flavour, and fresh herbs add the ultimate kick. Whether the pan is on the stove or the grill in the end is irrelevant to the taste.
