Local guys have a potluck wild game feed.
one of the older guys has been bringing a roaster full of sauerkraut stuffed wild ducks every year for probably 60+ years.
anyway probably 30 years ago I was going through the serving line and got myself a pretty large helping of sauerkraut and duck, the ol’ boy that brings that dish was right behind me, “that’s a pretty brave portion for wild duck”, he said in a ribbing type voice. I said “I love duck”. He kinda laughed.
so I sat down at the table, and he sat beside me. After awhile he noticed I was kinda picking at the duck, the sauerkraut was all but gone. He kinda laughed for he figured I was trying to be polite and kept on working on the duck whilst he was sitting beside me. “Usually what happens is that you eat the sauerkraut and throw the duck away…..
So to further the conversation, I asked what about goose and sauerkraut, “there’s no reason to ruin sauerkraut like that”….
