mixed game casserole

mixed game casserole

We went down to Nailsea yesterday, and the farmers’ market was on.  We came home with four beautiful faggots, and a pack of venison sausages, which have gone in the freezer.  And a loaf of stilton and walnut bread, which we had with some smoked buffalo cheese we also got there, and the remainder toasted for breakfast this morning – it went surprisingly well with marmalade!

And a pack of mixed game – venison and pheasant, mostly.  It was £5.90 for 500g; not quite enough to do four meals, but too much for two, so I immediately put 100g of lima beans into soak, and made the casserole yesterday evening, to cook slowly today for dinner.  We shall have it with dumplings, and purple sprouting broccoli.

I’ve put the recipe on Nibblous, as it’s a more “grown up” one than I normally do, and I thought it deserved it.
