Richard checking the duck and goose strips to see if properly leatherized and toughened up for jerky eating. They weren't done...so back they went into the smoker til the next morning.
And here we are with many, many strips of duck and goose jerky which family and friends are now enjoying.
Tough to see, but on th counter to th left of the meat is a tall, footed, canning jar which was a gift from some friends from Tegucigalpa days who remembered that I drink my wine out of jelly or canning jars. This is a Kerr canning jar, atop a pedestal and which came with canning lid and seal and a tag indicating that this is a "redneck wine glass." Love it. Another friend and neighbor up here, Kathy Harris gave me another version...it is a footed candlestick holder which was delivered for my birthday with the same note on it. Now, this canning jar, unlike the candlestick holder...holds SOME wine!
