I found this recipe in a 1984 edition of "American Family Cooking" in response to a request for pheasant recipes. Sounds delicious!

Stunningly good. I exchanged 1/3 cup of dry white wine for 1/3 of a cup of the apple cider and threw in 2 tblsp of maple syrup.

Very good! The apples create a wonderful "sauce" and the vinegar almost makes it seem like there is sauerkraut in the dish. I used white wine vinegar and served it over spaetzles. The spaetzles worked well. BTW, pheasant has a similar taste and texture to pork and I have found that it works well in most pork dishes.

OK! Here is another Pheasant recipe that DH and I think is outstanding! We must just love Pheasant. This is easy to prepare and the end result is well worth it. The apples turn into a sauce, but still has a bite to it. The Pheasant becomes nice and tender, the apple mixture creates a nice compliment to the over all dish. Thanks Lorac for posting.
