I Mix my Tartar Sauce up in a Cup. It is That Quick and Easy
Using the recipe above I quickly mix up a batch of tartar to go with the fish sticks that I was having for lunch.
Most people would use a small mixing bowl to prepare their dressing but I mix mine up in a coffee cup.Using a cup made it easy to measure out my ingredients.
I put the half cup of mayonnaise into the mug and follow this with the 1/4 cup of minced onion. I then put in the remaining ingredients and stir my ingredients till they mixed thoroughly together.
Making tartar in a cup was a little messy on the stirring so I would recommend using a bowl for your mixing instead.
If you require more tartar sauce simply double or triple your recipe ingredients. You can also adjust the ingredients to your taste preferences. I add ginger and garlic into my recipe.

Country Raised I Grew up on a Diet of Fresh Fish and Moose Meat
With six kids in our family my dad supplemented our diet like most other country folk. Fish, moose, elk, and an occasional pheasant or two were among the wild foods that graced our table.
My dad loved to fish and spent virtually every summer weekend out camping beside a local lake or creek.
Of course that meant that myself and my siblings were out there as well because my mom was not going to be watching us kids while dad was out relaxing alone at the local lake. He didn't seem to mind having us tag along and we certainly did not mind going.
He would pitch the tent and then into the boat with a couple of kids he would go while the rest of us played around our little camp site. When he was done fishing for the day he would light the fire and we would chow down on a caught fish or other food that my mother had sent along with us.
Now when I look back on those camping trips I really do have to wonder how the heck we kids came out of it alive. Despite all of us being still in elementary school not a one of us drowned while swimming unsupervised at what ever location my dad had chose.
We were chased by black bear, a big old bull, and ran into a moose or two as well. My dad was pretty good at scaring them off even though he rarely brought a gun along on our trips. We somehow all managed to survive.
It wasn't until I was an adult that I realized how important all that foraged food was to our family. It was a healthy diet but more importantly it insured that we were never without food.
