Have You Ever Eaten a . . .
I had squid once. It was like eating fish-flavored rubber bands.
I had baby shrimp (I don't know how they were prepared for this.) on a pizza once and it wasn't bad.
Chocolate covered ants? Yeah and you don't even taste the ants. If you don't know they're there you don't notice.
One of the first links I put in this blog was to RecipeSource which is on an online cookbook. You can find just about anything on it. Most of it is ordinary food from all over the world but from time to time you find some oddities.
French Fried SkunkYou kind of wonder if they are serious but I think they are. Have you ever eaten anything really unusual? Like a skunk?

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 skunks -- skinned and cleaned
1 tablespoon salt
water to cover
2 cups bear fat or lard
2 egg yolks,beaten
3 cups milk or cream
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons baking powder
Clean and wash the skunks, making sure that the scent
glands are removed. Cut up into small serving pieces.
Put a soup kettle on the stove and add the meat. Cover
with cold water and bring to a boil over high heat.
Lower the heat and boil until the meat is tender, about
40 minutes. Remove all the scum that rises to the surface.
Make a batter by mixing together the egg yolks, milk, flour,
salt and baking powder. Mix real good until the batter is
about like cake batter. Heat the bear fat or lard in a deep
fryer to about 360 degrees. Dip the pieces of skunk in the
batter and then fry them until golden brown. Drain well
and serve. Yum, yum.
