Fly Spray

consists of 1 cup of Avon Skin-so-soft bath oil, 1 cup of vinegar, and 1
Tbsp of Eucalyptus oil.  Spray on the goat before milking, so the spray
will settle before you start.  You can also spray the goat with plain
vinegar-- this isn't quite as good a deterrent as the skin-so-soft
mixture, but it'll keep the flies off and the goats from kicking for the few
minutes it takes to milk.



* 2 pounds fresh, lean kid
* 2 habenero peppers (or 4 jalapeno peppers)
* 3 tablespoons chopped garlic
* 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
* 2 tablespoons curry powder
* 3 minced green onions

  Trim goat meat of excess fat and membrane and cut into 1 to 2 inch chunks. Combine the chili peppers, garlic, black pepper, curry powder, green onions, cornstarch, olive oil, and half of the almonds in a food processor and grind into a paste.

Rub the paste well into the meat; cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour and up to 24 hours. Heat 2 Tbsp. of the clarified butter in a large, heavy skillet and fry the sliced onion until brown and almost crisp; remove onion from the pan and set aside. Heat the remaining clarified butter; brown the goat in 2 or 3 batches and set aside.

Add the wine to the hot pan, scraping the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon to release any tasty brown bits.

MACARONI AND CHEVON (Dec.1953 Goat Journal)

Chop lean, cold roast chevon fine, nearly fill a casserole with cold boiled macaroni. In center, where you have formed a hollow, put chopped meat, well seasoned with salt, pepper, a little liquor from canned tomatoes, and if liked, a bit of minced onion. Pour meat stock or gravy over all. Cover with bread crumbs, dribble 2 T melted goat butter over crumbs and bake half hour.

Chevon Meat Tortillas

Take one goat leg
Season with your favorite spices...make sure you use garlic...adds great flavor. Wrap completely with newspaper. Set in large, heavy duty aluminum foil...enough to cover entire leg tightly. Before sealing, take one complete bottle of Italian dressing...oil and vinegar variety, not creamy...soak the newspaper wrapped goat leg thoroughly. Wrap foil tightly, place in oven (we do this in ground with coals, but the oven will work too) at 350 degrees, slow cook this until meat falls off bone. Fix yourself some pico de gallo or salsa sauce, break out the flour tortillas...and enjoy.

Marty's Goat Kebobs

Take a good quality commercial garlic marinade and add to it some water, oil, and vinegar. Marinate deboned goat meat chunks (you can use an entire kid or just the legs and shoulder of a yearling animal leaving the rack and loin to make into chops) for at least 24 hours. Put on skewers with mushrooms, onions (either Spanish onions or little white boiling onions), tomatoes, zucchini, bell peppers, eggplant, you name it. Broil over coals 15 to 20 minutes until tender, turning and basting in the marinade occasionally.

If you want to make up your marinade from scratch, here's one of many recipes that work well with goat: mix together 6 oz. of tomato paste, 1/2 cup dry white wine, 1/2 cup wine vinegar, 3 tablespoons of olive oil, 2 tablespoons of mustard, 1 1/2 tablespoons of Worchester sauce, 3/4 teaspoons each of sage, oregano, and salt, 3/4 cups of minced onions, and 6 crushed cloves of garlic. This will do about 8 pounds of meat

Barbecued Goat Steaks

Either hindleg steaks or goat chops
Jerk rub from the "jerk leg" recipe (about a teaspoon per steak)
1 cup passion fruit nectar or juice

Rub meat in jerk rub and marinate in refrigerator at least 1 hour. Baste liberally with the nectar and then either barbecue, fry, or broil steaks. Flip and continue basting until cooked to desired extent.
