3 Strips salt pork or thick sliced bacon
4 lb Moose roast
1 ts Salt
1/4 ts Black pepper

1 ts Dry mustard
4 tb Brown sugar 2 1/2 c Water
1/2 c White wine vinegar

Remove all fat from the moose roast & wipe well with a clean damp cloth. Lard the roast as follows: Cut salt pork or bacon into 1/4" strips & chill thoroughly. Pierce the moose roast with a sharp knife or skewer at 2-inch intervals & insert the chilled strips of salt pork or bacon. Place the roast in a glass, earthenware or porcelain bowl. Mix the salt, pepper, cinnamon, cloves, mustard & brown sugar with the water & vinegar & pour over the moose ( 3 cups of sweet pickle juice may be used in place of the brown sugar, water & vinegar if desired. ) Marinate the roast for 24 to 48 hours, turning it over frequently if the liquid does not completely cover it. Remove the roast from the marinade & place it in a covered roaster in a 350 degree oven for approximately one hour. Add onion flakes & cranberry juice & continue roasting until tender. ( about one hour ). Transfer meat to a hot platter. Add flour to the pan drippings & stir until the flour has absorbed the fat. Add the milk, stirring constantly, until gravy is desired thickness. Serve hot with the roast.
