Hungry? Eat A Skunk, Brazilian Style

I was at a wedding last Saturday night and I found myself chatting with a hilarious middle-aged woman from Brazil. The conversation started initially with the Katrina Disaster, but she quickly took that in different direction. Being from outside the USA, she had some very candid thoughts on how spoiled we are as a nation when it comes to things like natural disasters and the help we expect from our government. It was an interesting point of view that I think some people seem to forget or never realize at all. She then went on a tear, explaining how this stuff happens every year in Brazil and no one down there complains or points fingers. They just put their lives back together and continue on. On the topic of food, she was quite candid as well. She said if someone in Brazil was hungry, they would just eat their dog or even better cook up a nice Skunk. Well this is really where she dragged me in. She proceeded to tell me how Skunk was actually quite delicious and of course “tastes just like chicken”. My first thought was to vomit in my mouth, but as she explained it with such passion, I began to see that meat is meat…just as long as you don’t slide me the stink bag as a joke.

So I decided to find a nice recipe for Skunk. First you need a skunk. Here is a recommended technique:

The method recommended by many Northern trappers is the oldtime box trap. You can make one of these traps to take to your summer cabin and have meat nd protection at the same time.

Once you get the skunk in the box trap, the really delicate work beings. Attach a long pole to the box trap and take the skunk carefully to the nearest water hole and drown him. This method is very humane and you can wash the skunk at the same time.

Once you have it your meat all cleaned you can cook it in many ways, including Deep Fried Skunk. For other options check out this list of tasty skunk treats.

I am not sure I will ever venture down this culinary road any time soon, but you never know when you will find yourself picking skunk grissle from back molars in San Paulo.

Enjoy and remember how good you have it today. I think I will stick to a nice fat steak for now.

StumbleUpon It!

    Yeah we do have it too cushy and we do expect too much from the Feds. This is yet another way for the average American to hide behind their personal negligence of residential selection. If you are below sea level logic would suggest you get wet at some point.

    I don’t like to see suffering, no one does, but you do have to assume mother nature will pull something at some point. When you handicap yourself by living below sea level you are not doing all that well.

    Its funny that Americans can actually think they are powerful enough to control mother nature. Like Chief Seattle said ‘Man is a part of nature not a part from nature.’

    Read the top of the post Finna. It is indirectly skunk related.
