How to make it

  • 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 [I didn't write this, folks] 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 in the deep fryer until golden brown. Drain well and serve.

    " It was excellent "

    I can not help buit give this one a five forks rating. Only because I actually know of people who have eaten Skunk and loved it and because you had the Kahonas to post it. Given the thought and the idea, I would have myself. What I am seeing here is a "GMTA" moment. Yes, great minds think alike. Thank you for posting such a recipe as to make others think, "Uh... "!

    This is kind of funny because I just tried possum last week, and after I got over my stomach roiling at the thought, it wasn't that bad. It was very much like pork but finer grained, but it was a bit greasier than I like. It's the thought that makes eating it difficult. I think my family could probably eat skunk, but it wouldn't be our first choice. We'd rather the skunks were eating the grubs out of our garden so we could have salad!

    Griz, you're going to have to have liposuction to make this recipe...
