Speaking of Eating Chinchillas...

Would you eat this?
    I added an edit to the post on chinchillas when I read that they are good eating...at least I think the recipes are legit. 
I am a fan of Andrew Zmmern's tv show, Bizarre Foods and he eats all kinds of weird stuff so I don't see why you couldn't eat chinchillas.

     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.

Alligator Stew
    I am told that if it isn't cooked right it's very greasy and doesn't taste good. Of course it tastes like chicken but supposedly has the texture of steak.

     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."
    I don't like calamari either. Funny thing...we were at a wedding reception in Chicago one time and there was a big bowl of fried onion rings on the table and they were delicious. At least I thought they were onion rings, but they weren't; they were...calamari. OK, so it tasted good, but the thought of eating it still turns me off. Same with eating chinchillas and alligators. But that's just me.

  1. The alligator stew looks tasty and the calamari...delicious! Turtle soup is good, too!
