This is a little left of the topic but it appears Meat Birds might be the best place to ask this question... you never know how some people might react when you start talking about butchering birds in the wrong company I smoked a couple wild ducks over the weekend with the intention of making some sort of dip for a potluck at work this week. As I was removing the meat from the carcasses, I had the idea of putting the carcasses into the slow cooker. So I did, leaving them there over night, covered with water. Now I have the broth and I am wondering where to start to make something delicious out of it. I google searched for ideas but didn't see anything that looked approriate. From tasting the broth, I think I am going to have to start by thining it; it's a little too close to cooking oil consistency right now. And it's gonna need about a ton of salt.... the flavor is definitely way way milder than I expected. I was worried that since I was starting with smoked birds, I might end up with really strong broth but not at all... suggestions are appreciated. I am also open to ideas about how to make the smoked duck meat into a dip, but I am not as lost on that one. I am pretty sure I could pull something off there.... but good ideas are never rejected.
