Quail in Wine Sauce
« on: October 24, 2003, 12:46:09 PM »
For this drunken need...

1/2 cup shortening
2 small onions, minced
2 whole cloves
1 tsp peppercorns
2 cloves garlic, cut fine
1/2 bay leaf
6 quail, cleaned and trussed
2 cups white wine
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
few grains cayenne pepper
1 tsp minced chives
2 cups cream

Okay, this one is simple, and doesn't require a couple of days of cookin...
Melt shortening and add onions, cloves, peppercorns, garlic, and bay leaf; cook for several minutes.
Add quail and brown on all sides.  Add white wine, salt, pepper, cayenne, and chives and simmer until tender, about 30 minutes.
Remove quail to hot serving dish.  Strain sauce, add cream, and heat to boiling point.  Pour over quail.

And, there ya go!  
(I don't hardly ever do this one...I usually fry or bbq quail up like chicken.)
