A Venison Backstrap, Sandhill Plum Sauce Breakfast

It was a bountiful summer here! The rains really brought on the wild sandhill plums, mulberries, morel mushroom, wild onions, etc.. I made full use of all of them.

Headed to the lake for a few days of camping..

Stopped by one of the many plum bushes, to gather a few for one of my venison meals at the lake..

I also brought some of my homemade sandhill plum jelly...

Started a skillet of tatoes on the fire first...

also some of the plums and a plump jalapeno pepper...

I brought some of the backstrap steaks from last rifle season, also a small roast that I sliced into steaks..
Steaks seasoned with coarse salt and cracked black pepper.  I like to keep em simple..

Not sure which cooks faster, the eggs or the venison steaks. They don't take long at all!

When the plums were tender, I smooshed them up a bit, then added some of my homemade jelly and sliced the jalapeno. It came out better than I thought it would. lol

Breakfast was ready!

Topped my venison with a bit of the plum sauce and called er good.

Venison backstrap steaks are some of my favorites, but topped with the sandhill plum sauce made it  special. I feel blessed to have access to both!

Summer went by too fast! The garden did well, even though the grasshoppers were thicker than usual. The ducks and chickens loved them.
Hope everyone is doing well!

Thanks for stopping by!

I miss venison for sure. We hunted a lot in SC before we moved to Chile. Did you catch any fish? We catch 20lb salmon out of our rivers here in Chile. Jim

Good to see ya Jim! Hope all is going well for you in Chile!
Still raising your own pigs?
Heck, that salmon sounds fantastic! Nice!!
I did catch quite a few catfish. Cooked some at the lake and brought some home.
Hope you're doing well, thanks for stopping by!

We are going into spring here so everything is doing fine. We put the last pig in the freezer a month ago or so. We have Swine erysipelas in our soil and it killed 27 out of 29 of my piglets so I have to wait a year and let the soil rest. So I am going to move back to sheep for a year. I really want a few steers but my fence is just not up to par yet. I grew up on a cattle farm and love Herefords. So I would like to get back to real meat. But the sheep do cut the grass well and you get to eat the lawn mower at the end of the year. Thanks for the cooking. Love it. Jim in Chile

Sounds like you are still living the good life down there. Great to see ya!
