Pouldeau Gumbo

This simple brine recipe is a great first step when cooking freshly killed waterfowl. Simply whisk together 4 tablespoons of salt with 4 cups of water. Make sure your salt is dissolved before adding your cleaned pouldeau to the brine. Allow your waterfowl to brine for one hour and up to 4 hours. Larger ducks and geese should be brined for longer.
