Tiny teal make a great starter, and the fruity tang of rosehip jelly is the perfect foil. Rosehips can be harvested through the winter and improve after a few frosts as they sweeten up a little. You’ll have enough jelly to serve with several other game meals - it keeps well in the fridge.

You could serve the teal with some toast and/or wild salad leaves. For a main course, allow two teal per person.
