Roasted moose bone marrow with juniper berries

  • 20 moose bone marrow

To remove the blood from the marrow, place the bones in a bowl of ice water with 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt per 1 cup water. Refrigerate or put outside in the snow for 12 to 24 hours, changing the water every 4 hours and replacing the salt each time. But the bone marrows on hot coals on the open fire for 20-25 min. Sprinkle with salt and eat with with a twig with a sharp end.

Moose stock with foraged mushrooms and dried reindeer hearts with freshly baked bread, made on a camper oven

  • 1 kg bone=1 l water

The raw materials are placed in a spacious pot, and cover with cold water. Heat the content. Skim any impurities that may come to the surface to get a clear stock in the end. Heat up slowly which allows you to have control over the temperature rise to prevent the stock from boiling and give chemical processes time to unfold. Keep the stock around 90 degrees for 8 to 48 hours (or more). If you use pieces of whole meat, lower the heat after two to four hours and pell the meat from the bones. The meat is good for casseroles and soups.
