More Foraging

Whilst I had discover a potential opportunity to place duck a l'orange on the menu Jan really excelled herself today.  We were back in the local wetlands when she stopped and quietly pointed.

The last time I ate swan was on the Chatham Islands back in 1979, and they were black swans.  I distinctly recall the meat was very dark and had a very strong “gamey” taste!

I’ll leave the local East Europeans to eat the fish from the canal.  In 1990 I ate fish from a similar looking water environment.  They were carp from the marshes adjacent to the Shatt Al Arab river on the border of Iran and Iraq.  I remember them being full of bones and tasting of mud and sewage!
