Recipe by fraxinus
A traditional Cree dish (Canadian Plains Indians) this is the only recipe that I have been able to find. I hope others will have information on Moose Nose as well.

Hi, I am a Mikmaq from Miawpukek Reserve NL. Moose nose is a traditional recipe here. We use a wood fire (blow touch I modern times) to singe the hair of the nose, scrape the soot off the nose then boil it for a few hours. Very nice tasting. The lower lip has a similar taste. I will post pics latter.
Directions See How It's Made
- Place nose in large pot -- hide, hair and all!
- Boil for 2 hours.
- Don't look in the pot during cooking.
- Cool dish down until you can handle it, then skin the nose without fainting.
- Discard the hide. Wash the nose in cold water. Place the nose in a pot of clean, cold water. Add salt & pepper to your taste, bay leaves, and onions. Boil until tender.
- Chill and serve sliced on crackers with a smear of cream cheese.
