Years ago, as I poured over Self Reliance books and Homestead catalogs I never dreamed that I would have the opportunity to be a homestead affiliate partner with the publisher of one of my favorites, Lehman’s.

If you’ve never visited Lehman’s website or perused one of their catalogs you, my friend, are missing out! Their physical store is located in Amish country in Ohio but you can learn all about their story at this LINK.

They offer all kinds of homestead supplies ranging from Birdhouses to Plows to Cast Iron Cookware and Homestead Books galore! You can visit them on the web or request a digital or paper copy of their catalog here.

So please, go check out their store. They have some unusual stuff and I’m sure you’ll enjoy the visit!

Venison Tenderloin Jalapeno Poppers

Venison Tenderloin Jalapeno Poppers

First: You’ll Need a Venison Tenderloin

To make Venison Tenderloin Jalapeno Poppers you’ll need venison tenderloin. If you’re a deer hunter hopefully you’ve saved a tenderloin. If not you’ll have to find a hunter willing to share. Or you could become a hunter and harvest your own fresh tenderloin this fall. Refer to our Hunting Small and Large Game post for more information on getting started.

One of our favorite recipes on the homestead!

Venison Tenderloin Jalapeno Poppers Ingredients:

  • 12 whole, fresh Jalapenos halved lengthwise with all seeds and membranes removed.
  • 8 ounces of cream cheese, softened.
  • 12 slices of raw thin-sliced pork bacon cut in half to make 24 pieces each 4 to 5 inches long (one package of bacon usually works out perfect).
  • 1 pound of venison tenderloin sliced very thin into 24 pieces.
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup Worcester sauce
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder, or 2 cloves fresh crushed garlic
  • 24 wooden toothpicks

AeroGarden Review

Christmas Gift

We received this AeroGarden as a Christmas gift last year and didn’t really think about putting it up until spring.
