Dry Rub for Game Birds
Dry Rub for Game Birds:
This gives extra flavour to dove, quail, pheasant,
wild turkey, and other fowl. Adjust ingredients to
your own taste or to compliment what you're cooking.
2 Tablespoons pickling spice, crushed in a mortar and
pestle or spice mill
1 Tablespoon coarsely-ground black pepper
1 Tablespoon salt
1 Tablespoon dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons white pepper
2 teaspoons dry mustard
2 teaspoons powdered ginger
1 teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
6 to 8 juniper berries, crushed in a mortar and pestle
or spice mill
Stir all the ingredients together in a small bowl.
Store the rub in a tightly closed jar. It keeps
indefinitely but loses its' potency over time.
Makes about 1/2 cup.
