    @MoonShadows I would constantly be dragging DH away from that pie place, lol. He would set up camp at a place like that. He is constantly telling me I should start selling pies but I know he would eat them all up first.

    DH works at the poultry processing plant but I'm the designated killer, processor of our yardbirds. He does offer up his opinion while I'm doing it however.:barnie

    @ducks4you I love to can up apple pie filling and apple pie preserves both. I just used my last apple pie filling a couple of days ago for an apple crisp and just opened the last jar of apple pie preserves this morning.

    Boil up two small-medium ducks with a chicken stock cube, then debone the meat and shred it. Keep the juices from cooking, you'll use it later, but pour it into another container.

    Fry up as many mushrooms as you'd like to add in the pot you cooked the meat in, in some butter. Add one packet each of chicken noodle soup powder and mushroom soup powder to the fried mushrooms and butter. It's going to form a dryish paste, but fry it a bit over low heat, then slowly start spooning the juices from the meat into the soup powder paste, loosening it and thinning it, while adding the juices… You'll eventually have a thick soupy sauce. No add the shredded meat to this and add enough of the juice to make it soupy, but not too runny. Let this mixture boil for about 15 minutes, keeping an eye on the moisture in there, add more juices if it gets too dry. Once it's all cooked through and thick enough for a pie filling, put your pies together and enjoy.

    Frying the soup powder like that has an amazing effect on the flavour, it really brings it out, so it's well worth the effort! I've tried this with creamy chicken soup and found chicken noodle soup has the best flavour and taste for this recipe.

    WhatEVER recipe you use it will taste great, but be aware that these are ways to Stretch your meat. You may think that a little bit of duck meat won't be enough, but enough duck meat for a meal will probably be 4x as much as you need for a pie!
    I don't make my chickens into chicken pot pie for this very reason!! I like my crust fresh, so when I find enough chicken for a chicken salad sandwich for two for lunch, THAT's the amount of meat will make a pie for 4.
