The British Library ^ | 01 April 2012 | The British Library

A long-lost medieval cookbook, containing recipes for hedgehogs, blackbirds and even unicorns, has been discovered at the British Library. Professor Brian Trump of the British Medieval Cookbook Project described the find as near-miraculous. "We've been hunting for this book for years. The moment I first set my eyes on it was spine-tingling."

Unicorns?

Skittles or it didn't happen.

Unicorn is best served with freshly picked tree-spaghetti.

I hope it has some ideas about what to do with the horn. I’ve just been throwing them away, but it seems like a waste.

The author may think that death will prevent his prosecution for violating the Endangered Species Act, but he didn’t plan for the committed ‘crats of the Obama Regime.

Sheesh, grind the horn to a relly fine consistancy and use it as a tenderizer. Unicorn meat is tough.

YUMMM....i remember ONCE as a little girl, we had freshly picked tree-spaghetti. Mom says it was rare treat for us and to enjoy. I wasn't born yet the year that there was such a bumper crop (1947?)...but mom talks about it sometimes.

*sigh*

use it as a tenderizer

Unicorns and aliens are the hardest to prepare, and I don't have the patience, so I just settle for grilled with lemmon, butter, salt, and pepper. Bigfoot would be interesting, and you could probably stock your freezer for a year with just one.

I like tree spaghetti, but no one needs to serve me. I can get it myself.

I wonder if it has a recipe for blackbird pie? I think it starts with 2 dozen blackbirds...
