Quail is a mild white-meat bird, smaller and richer in flavor than chicken. Our quail is supplied by Manchester Farms. They arrive in your kit semi-boneless, ensuring that they cook evenly and quickly. The traditional pepper jelly comes from 5iveOaks in Birmingham, Alabama, and its spiciness is tempered when caramelized on the bird. The garnishing of almonds, or “amandine,” lends crunch and nuttiness to the vegetables and creamy grits.
