Harvest Soup

This soup becomes even more flavorful as it ages.  Serve with a green leafy salad and a loaf of crispy bread.

  • 1 pheasant
  • 1/4 cup plus 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 lb. hot venison sausage chopped
  • 1/2 lb. smoked sausage chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 quarts chicken stock
  • 4 medium potatoes diced
  • 1 10 oz. package frozen mixed vegetables
  • 2 16 oz. cans creamed corn
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seafood Seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

Clean pheasant and cut into pieces.  In a large stew pot, cover pheasant pieces with 2 quarts of water and 1/4 cup of salt.  Allow to soak for several hours.  Drain, rinse, and pat dry.

Return pheasant to pot, cover with fresh water and cook over medium heat for 1/2 to 3/4 hour.  Remove meat and allow to cool.  Pick meat from the bones, cut into small pieces and set aside.

Add sausage, onions, and stock to the pot and bring to a boil.   Lower heat and simmer for 15 mins.  Add potatoes and mixed vegetables and boil 5 minutes longer.  Add chopped pheasant meat, corn, evaporated milk, bay leaves, seafood seasoning, oregano, pepper, paprika and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt to the pot.

Lower heat to simmer and cook for 1 hour, allowing flavors to blend.
