|Would you eat this?|
I am also a fan of Swamp People and they eat alligators all the time. The Food Network says, "You'll want to try it after seeing all the recipes and tricks for cooking with alligator." I don't know about that, but I've seen it for sale at the local meat market we frequent but have never had the guts to try it. There's a place in California that has all kinds of exotic meat for sale, including alligator: Buy Wild Game Meats.
When I was a kid we used to eat rabbits, squirrels and pheasants my dad shot while he was working on the railroad. I saw a big snapping turtle butchered once and that was enough for me...it was a real turn off...disgusting. Just the thought of eating reptiles turns me off as does eating any wild game. Here's a recipe for something called "Alligator Piquant."
