  1. This recipe works well for when the in-laws come over!! Just make sure you cook something else for yourself.

    French Fried Skunk

    2 Skunks, skinned and cleaned
    1 tb Salt
    Water to cover
    2 c Bear fat or lard
    2 Egg yolks, beaten
    3 c Milk or cream
    1 1/2 c Flour
    1/2 ts Salt
    2 tb Baking powder
    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 boi over high heat. Lower the heat and boil until the meat is tender, about 40 minues. Remove all the scum that rises to the surface. Make a batter by mixing together the egg yolks, milk, flour, salt and baking ppowder. Mix real good until the batter is about like cake batter. Heat the bear fat or lard in a deep fryer to about 360 degrees. Dip the ppieces of skunk in the batter and then fry them in the deep fryer until golden brown. Drain well and serve.
