Real Farmwives of America & Friends in a kitchen for an afternoon with a Gooseberry Patch Freezer-Friendly Recipes Cookbook???? Well let me tell you... you get a lot of food. There were countops full of kitchen utensils, mixing bowls, ingredients and stove tops with 6 or 7 pots and pans all cooking at the same time, while the ovens were full of baked goods. There was laughter and confusion and lots of elbow grease from stirring, chopping and preparing a total of 100 freezer meals in about 5 hours time.
Maple Leaf Farms ground duck and have blogged before about this company and how Indiana ranks 1st in Duck production in the nation. Duck is a low in saturated fats, low in calories, but high in iron.
