Pigeon sausages - a wartime recipe

We can learn so much from history about how to avoid food waste. Wood pigeons are regarded as pests and during the 2nd World War in the UK, farmers were strongly encouraged to cull them as they would otherwise eat large parts of the grain crop. The birds have a modest amount of meat on their breasts and this was not wasted. In this video I show you how to make pigeon sausages using a wartime recipe. The pigeons were given to us (in large quantities) in a swap with a friend who goes shooting. This is the first time I've used pigeon meat to make sausages and I was rather pleased with the outcome.
