    Well, how to prepare this venison roast with cherry sauce?

    1. Preheat your oven on 200°C (392°F).

    2. Wash the piece of venison and pat it dry carefully.

    3. Salt and pepper the meat and rub it with the ground juniper berries, black pepper corns, pimento, bay leaf, clove, cests of orange and lemon, ginger and lovage. These spices will underline the venison’s taste.

    4. Sear the flavored venison in an oven-safe pan from all sides.

    5. Take out the venison and roast the very fine diced onion in the same pan until it is golden, then add the wine and the cherry juice. Let the liquid reduce to a third of its initial amount.

    6. Now add the venison stock and put the meat back in this gravy.

    7. Place the covered pan for 90 minutes in the oven:
    After 45 minutes turn a round the roast and put the pan back in the oven for another 45 minutes.

    8. After 90 minutes the venison roast is done.

    9. Again take out the meat of the pan and adjoin the creme fraiche to the gravy.

    10. Optional flavor the gravy with the different spices mentioned above.

    11. Now you can garnish this dish with e.g Knoedel, red cabbage and lingonberry jam.

    Have a nice meal!
