    This is not exotic, but I think it is unusual.

    I just tried it today for the first time. Cut Goose breast into strips. Put in crock pot and cover with coffee. Let cook for 3-4 hrs. on high. Pour off the coffee, shred/chop the goose strips, put back in crock pot and add your favorite BBQ sauce. Cook a couple more hours and serve. Tastes great!

    Cooking the goose in the coffee takes out the "Gamey" taste. It really has the taste and texture of shredded beef before you add the BBQ.

    Now it gets more unusual. I took a ladle of the remaining coffee/goose bits and added Tony Chachares cajun seasoning to see how it would taste. I was suprised, it was pretty good. So I froze 2 cups of the coffee/goose bits and will add it to my next batch of gumbo. "Coffee gumbo" sounds good, doesn't it?

    Give it a try.

    Stuffed peppers with Coot (or teal)

    Grind meat and mix with a small amount of pork (4:1) and season with a good Italian sauage mix. Load up the peppers, stuff a few slivers of cheese into them, bake in oven or on grill.

    Delicious
