Raccoon recipe

Pupster | Jan 7, 2005 11:27 AM

I was browsing through a soul food cookbook borrowed from the library this evening only to be startled by this peculiar recipe. Apologies to the better informed, I'm just an ignorant city gal and am curious to appease this mis-education.

Dolly's Delicious 'Coon from Sylvia's Family Soul Food Cookbook

1 5-lb raccoon
3 large onions
1/4 lb fatback
2 tbs red pepper flakes
1 tsp seasoned salt
2 tsp salt
2 tsp pepper
2 tsp Accent (optional)
2 cups chopped onion

You simmer the raccoon for 6 HOURS! before baking it for another hour.

2 questions:
1) Has anyone tried this or some other raccoon recipe? and please describe the taste.
2) Are there other unusual meat recipes out there? (Not the more common alligator, snake, horse, roo or usual game.)
