Old-Fashioned Gingerbread Cake; 2 turtle doves — 5 Comments

  1. nightsmusic, these are the same people that have the deer farm and give us venison. They also have chickens and goats and ducks. I’ll never be that self-sufficient.

    Zoomie, indeed….

  2. I have to say I’m conflicted. On one hand, I join with you in saying “Ewwwwww!” about the dead birds. On the other hand, how fantastically cool! But then, of course, the “how fantastically cool” wins out when you report that they took them away to pluck and clean for you. My first imulse is to say to roast them stuffed with dried cherries or something like that…. Isn’t there a famous Moroccan dish that includes dove?

    I can’t wait to hear what you’ve come up with!

    As for the gingerbread. There’s no contest at all about the topping. Lemon Cream Cheese for me please!

    • Elizabeth, they were interesting – and tasty. But I think I roasted them too long. They were too small for my thermometer to work (or something). I have to say I look at the doves flying from our trees a little differently now…..
