Grind It!

I've just finished grinding my first 3.5 pounds of venison.

I ground it straight up. I'll add the fat to it once I've got a large enough batch to process.

For now it's separated into packages awaiting vacuum sealing.

I think I may actually be getting the hang of this...

Thanks for reading,


Edited To Add:

I'm done for the day and have about 27.5 pounds of ground venison now. I've got to wait to get suet from the butcher tomorrow because he didn't have any for me today. At an 80/20 ratio I'll need 5.5 pounds of fat which should bring me to a total of 34 pounds of ground meat.

I've got some trimming left to do but the largest portion of it is now finished.
