Hello Pete,

I could only locate one stew recipe with this name, and I found a venison pot roast recipe also. See below. There's also a "Black Forest Venison Stew" recipe in this book:



Black Forest Venison Stew

2 to 2-1/2 lbs. venison for stew, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
2 tbsp. flour
2 1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 tbsp. oil or drippings
2 cups water
2/3 cup vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 medium onion, sliced
1 large bay leaf
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. cloves

Combine flour, salt and pepper; dredge venison cubes and brown in oil or
drippings. Pour off drippings. Add water, vinegar, sugar, onion, bay leaf,
cinnamon and cloves; bring to boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Reduce heat,
cover tightly and cook slowly 90 to 120 minutes or until meat is tender.
Thicken cooking liquid with flour for gravy. 6 to 8 servings. (Add more
water if needed to keep from burning.)
Black  Forest  Venison  Pot  Roast

 Ingredients :
 4 to 5 lb. round roast with bone
 3 tbsp. cooking oil
 1/4 tsp. pepper duck seasoning
 1 envelope dry onion soup mix
 5 lg. carrots, cut into chunks
 5 lg. potatoes with skin, quartered

 Preparation :
    Roll the roast in flour and brown in the cooking oil in a Dutch
 oven placed over high heat.  Turn the roast so all of the sides are
 browned.  Sprinkle with pepper duck.  Add the contents of the soup
 envelope to the pot along with 2 1/2 cups of water.  Bring the water
 to a boil, cover and turn the heat to high simmer.  Make sure the
 water is bubbling mildly.  Cook the roast for about 2 hours, turning
 it occasionally.  Add the carrots and scrubbed potatoes and turn up
 the heat until the sauce is again bubbling.  Cook for about 30
 minutes until the vegetables are fork-tender.  Serve the roast on a
 heated platter surrounded by the vegetables.  Ladle the pan juices
 onto the meat and vegetables.  The juices can be served as is or
 thickened a little with flour.  Garnish with sprigs of parsley.
 Serves 5 or 6.

Grasshopper Pie Origin

  what is the origin of the graaahopper pie. where did the name come from????

Hello Frank,

First, there was a green, mint flavored liqueur named "creme de menthe". Then there was a white, chocolate flavored liqueur named "creme de cacao". Someone thought of mixing these two, adding a little cream, and so created a popular sweet after-dinner cocktail. They named this cocktail a "grasshopper" because of its green color.

Then, somewhere in the southern U.S. in the 1950s, a chef came up with the idea of making a gelatin and whipped cream pie flavored with these same two liqueurs and sporting the same green color. Of course, since it was based on the grasshopper drink and was green, it was named "grasshopper pie."
