Brilliant price for pheasants (at least in London). The 99p delivery charge is per order; not per bird. The best price I can find elsewhere is around £5. Abel & Cole tend to be extortionately expensive for most things but there must be a glut of pheasant somewhere! I got six delivered last week and they averaged around 700g each.

Pheasant tastes so much better than chicken but can be dry when roasted so try Delia's recipe here:

http://www.deliaonline.com/recipes/type-of-dish/one-pot-meals/pot-roast-of-pheasant-with-shallots-and-caramelised-apples.html

If I were having my last meal on Death Row, the above would be it. Also great as an alternative to turkey at Christmas. Delia tends to over-complicate things. If you don't have the time or inclination the recipe is just as good slightly simplified. Forget the Calvados; onions are as good as shallots; Bramley apples are better than Cox's and there's no need to faff around with the apples (stew them simply). Great recipe otherwise!

I pluck pheasant a lot in season, and my wife is very pleasant ;-)
Good price too, moorland reared birsd are going for near £5 a head here at the moment.

Pheasant is a superb bird to cook ala duck in orange, but substitute the orange for Cranberries, and forget the pricking, there is very little fat on a Pheasant, but the skin is lovely when crispy, the sectet to cooking is to get the heat all round the bird as fast as possible to cook without drying out, which is why it lends itself ala duck, the has to be lots of gravy/juice to appreciate this bird best.

I'm not a pheasant plucker, I'm the pheasant plucker's mate, I'm only plucking pheasants because the pheasant plucker's late.

I'm not a pheasant plucker, I'm a pheasant plucker's son
I'm only plucking pheasants 'till the pheasant plucker comes.

Me husband is a keeper, he's a very busy man
I try to understand him and I help him all I can,
But sometimes in an evening I feel a trifle dim
All alone, I'm plucking pheasants, when I'd rather pluck with him.

I'm not a pheasant plucker, I'm a pheasant plucker's mate
I'm only plucking pheasants 'cos the pheasant plucker's late !

I'm not good at plucking pheasants, at pheasant plucking I get stuck
Though some pheasants find it pleasant I'd rather pluck a duck.
Oh plucking geese is gorgeous, I can pluck a goose with ease
But pheasant plucking's torture because they haven't any grease.

I'm not a pheasant plucker, he has gone out on the tiles
He only plucked one pheasant and I'm sitting here with piles !

You have to pluck them fresh, if it’s fresh they’re not unpleasant,
I knew a man in Dunstable who could pluck a frozen pheasant.
They say the village constable had pheasant plucking sessions
With the vicar on a Sunday ‘tween the first and second lessons.

I'm not a pheasant plucker, I'm a pheasant plucker's mum
I'm only plucking pheasants 'till the pheasant plucker's come.

My good friend Godfrey is most adept, he's really got the knack
He likes to have a pheasant plucked before he hits the sack.
I like to give a helping hand, I gather up the feathers,
It's really all our pheasant plucking keeps us pair together.

I'm not a pheasant plucker, I'm a pheasant plucker's friend
I'm only plucking pheasants as a means unto an end !

My husband's in the forest always banging with his gun
If he could hear me half the time I'm sure that he would run,
For there's fluff in all my crannies, there's feathers up my nose
And I'm itching in the kitchen from my head down to my toes.

I'm not a pheasant plucker, I'm a pheasant plucker's wife
And when we pluck together it's a pheasant plucking life !

Are there any middle class ones? These will have been fed on McDonalds etc to fatten them up
#13
Don't deliver in my area pity good deal added heat anyway

We just drive onto the verge, bowl them over with the car and then jump out and chuck them in the boot.
Probably not an option in central London though.

Works well with traffic wardens though. As well as a standard gutting knife you'll need a bowl of Dettol and a wire brush for proper preparation. They need a bit longer in the pot, and of course Calvados is completely wasted on them. Best eaten with relish.
