Thread: Fallow, fat on or off?

    Fallow, fat on or off?

    Got myself a nice big Fallow doe with a nice layer of fat on it and was wondering if i should trim the fat off. Was going to cook the haunch as it has a nice layer of fat ready for roasting.. but i've been told different things, i was told to cut all the fat off as it makes the meat taste bitter, then i was told by someone esle to leave it on?. So to trim or not to trim, is there any rules or does and dont's, does it matter if there is a bit of fat on a leg or not.
    Cheers guys.

    Don`t trim it!!
    Sprinkle with Rosemary, loosely wrap in tin foil and roast slowly. The fat will add to the flavour.

    Don't know about fallow, but certainly Red Deer fat can be quite rancid in taste. Trim a little bit off, fry it up and see how it tastes.

    If you do trim it off, get a piece of pork belly or beef fat and wrap it in that instead.
