One of our neighbours brought us a 3 lb bear roast to try. This was the first time I have tried bear & was a little nervous. It was delicious. I served it with mashed potatoes and boiled carrots.

    Bear: the ultimate adventurous ingredient. You can't get that at the grocery store in Toronto! :-) What type of flavour did it have?

    A friend of mine gave me some venison once and I made a chili out of it. That was pretty tasty.

      It had a really rich, dark, beefy flavour, very tender. I also cook venison, mostly stew and chops. The stew is delicious, better than beef and I marinate the chops and lather them with barbeque sauce. We have a couple of bear in the area right now, so here's hoping!

        There's to eating locally :-) Look up my chili if you want to try it with your next haul of venison. The recipe is called "Deer Beer Pumpkinhead Chili."
