Badger With Chianti: Cooking Tips from a Roadkill Fanatic
AFP via Spiegel Online ^ | October 01, 2013

Posted on 10/03/2013 9:01:36 PM PDT by Slings and Arrows

Arthur Boyt eats animals killed by cars. He stews badgers with the head on, and he loves the taste of labrador. He'll even eat carrion several weeks old. Once you've picked the maggots off and cooked it, the meat tastes really good, says the British pensioner.

Cats, foxes, badgers, mice or dogs, killed and mangled by tires and left to rot by the side of the road. Most people simply drive past and feel disgust with perhaps a tinge of sorrow. But Arthur Boyt scrapes them up and has them for dinner.

Roadkill eaters devour whatever they find. Boyt, 74, a retired researcher, collects the furry accident victims and takes them to his remote house in the beautiful county of Cornwall in southwestern England, the AFP reports.

"I've eaten stuff which is dark green and stinks -- it does appear that if you cook it well, its rottenness does not hinder one's enjoyment of the animal," Boyt told the AFP. "It's not in the taste of the food; it's in the head. It's a threshold you have to step over if you're going to eat this kind of stuff. You say 'OK, this is just meat.'"

Cook Badgers with the Head On

Here's his recipe for badger stew: Leave head on, coat with flour and herbs, and braise for five hours.

The retired researcher's favorite dish is dog, which he says tastes a bit like lamb. He has eaten two lurchers and a labrador that had been hit by cars. He insists he tried to find the owners before eating them. But, after failing to do so, he washed them down with red wine.

Don’t think of it as roadkill - think of it as “Obama Steak.”

Having eaten roadkill in my youth and I must say this is nuts. Leave the carrion for the turkey vultures!

There is a common sense way to do this right. If you drove down the road 45 minutes ago and there was no rabbit there, yet on the way home you happened to see a rabbit in the road with not a mark on him; what sane man would leave this feast for other pickup trucks to simply run over? The head of a rabbit moving across the road is bumper height. The car knocked it on the noggin which means you don't have to worry about shotgun pellets in the meat. It is best when your car did the kill. Dress it and fry it just like chicken and you'll eat well that night!

As the article is from der Spiegel, I suspect it is a dig at the Brits and by proxy, US.

Har!

I was just looking at the ‘please save our pets” fire/emergency window stickers.

They have DOG CAT OTHER check boxes.

I bet if I filled out what the “OTHERS” were, they wouldn’t come in.

A long time ago, when I lived and worked in Idaho, one night on the way to work there was a traffic back up on highway 95. It seems that a semi had whacked a moose. When I was able to finally drive by, I saw the huge critter. It was still alive, though laying down. Found out later that the meat ended up at the county jail. They feed ‘em roadkill all the time, I was told. Moose, elk and venison is pretty darned good stuff. Glad to see that it doesn’t go to waste.

The rotten stuff this guy is talking about is just plain gross though.

BADGER WITH CHIANTI - and I thought this was a headline from TMZ about the latest in Amish celebrity romance.
