Just in time. My cousin’s mother gave me a cookbook the other day. I flipped it open, and I swear, the book fell open on this recipe. I just about fell off the couch.
1 medium raccoon
salt and pepper
red pepper to taste
2 or 3 sliced onions
Clean coon. Soak in salted water or vinegar overnight or longer. Remove coon, wipe dry. Cover with a coating of red pepper and water made into a paste. Place in a 350 degree oven for three hours. When coon is tender, remove from oven and remove coating of red pepper. Salt and pepper to taste, cover with sliced onions, placing onions in cavity. Bake for an additional one hour or until tender. Be sure to place on rack with drip pan to catch all of the fat. Serve with sweet potatoes.
Who knew sweet potatoes went with roasted raccoon?
