There is a big different in hunting a whale and fighting dogs.
I recently saw a show on the Travel Channel by Andrew Zimmern. He went to Alaska to show the native cuisine. I have to say that it was the most disgusting food I have ever seen.... And I’ve eaten chicken and pigeon heads, chicken feet, duck tongue and jaw, and beef tendons. When I saw the Alaskan food I actually gagged.
One of the things was whale fat placed in a jar. The jar was shaken until the oils separated. They then let the remaining fat and oil sit in the jar for weeks until it was ripe. They put it on everything. They also ate deserts that looks like about 95% lard mixed with berries and sugar.
Yum. But it will help fuel your internal furnace in the arctic or sub-arctic winter.
