In any case, the seller must have certificates confirming that the meat has passed laboratory tests and does not contain pathogenic microorganisms. Moreover, such papers should be provided at the first request of any buyer.
  • In what form to buy? In most regions of the country venison is sold in frozen form, in which it retains all its taste and beneficial properties, and is also stored for a rather long time and does not deteriorate.Chilled meat can only be bought in the northern regions where the deer live. But in this form the shelf life of the product will be minimal.
  • What to get? Which part of the carcass is best to choose? When dressing it is usually divided into a saddle (it includes the lower back), shoulders, front legs and neck, as well as hind legs. The most tender meat is usually in the saddle, so it is often used for roasting. The neck and shoulders are very muscular and therefore hard, so it’s best to simmer or use them to make minced meat, which makes excellent sausages, burgers and sausages. And the legs are usually baked in whole or in portions in the oven or on the grill.
