Thread: Lights or lungs

    Lights or lungs

    What is the best thing to do with lights. Usually I give it to the dog but it seems a waste as I think you can use them in faggots but I don't have any caul.

    I shot a Muntjac Doe on Saturday and I have fried half the liver and one kidney and I also have the heart which I usually roast .

    Could they be included in burgers or meat balls with chopped up skirt and heart?

    1lb 2oz/500g very fresh venison liver
    1 venison heart
    1 set of venison lights
    9oz/250g fat pork belly
    9oz/250g bacon trim
    1 onion, finely chopped
    2 garlic cloves, crushed (optional)
    5Żoz/150g fresh breadcrumbs
    1 tbls chopped parsley
    1 tbls chopped thyme
    half a wine glass of port or brandy
    a good pinch of nutmeg
    4 juniper berries ground
    Paired, finely chopped zest from half an orange
    salt and freshly ground black pepper
    Pre-soaked pork or venison caulfat. (Also can be obtained from a butchers)

    Peel any membrane from the liver and trim out any tough ventricles. Do the same with the heart. Trim, cube and soak the lungs in fresh water for 15 minutes. Put the pork belly, bacon, onion, liver, heart and lung through a mincer on the medium plate (5mm). Transfer to a bowl, add all the other ingredients except the caul fat and mix well.
    Chill this mixture for half and hour. Divide the mixture into roughly 5Żoz /150g balls. Wrap each ball in a sheet of caul fat then chill for a further half an hour
    To cook gently pan fry the faggots on all sides until golden brown and cooked through. They could also be baked in an oven with a little stock.
