Seadog, head cheese is definitely not the worst thing you can eat. It's overall not a lot different than menudo or chitlins, tripe, or hot dogs. You may be getting some of the same stuff in the hot dogs you eat. For me, it's all meat, it's all good.

I don't know about that, Bo. You could get me to eat the head cheese, but I don't think I want to go to all that trouble to make something I'm probably not going to like a whole lot. lol I'll file this under things to make if my situation (or the world) takes a serious turn for the worse. (Something I pray doesn't happen but we got to be ready for anything).

Why don't you try head cheese? You take the head of the animal, skin it and but it in a big old pot of boiling water. Boil it for an hour or so, then pull the head out. Put it back in and boil it some more until the skull comes out clean, not a lick of tissue anywhere, no tongue, brains anything. When that happens, you discard the skull and keep boiling your mixture. You boil it down to a thick gloppy mixture and let it set. If it is done right you will have a warm gelatin like thick consistency, You pour it into a mold like a loaf pan and put it in the fridge. When you take it out of the fridge you should be able to slice it and eat it. My family used to make it 50+ years ago, and it has been at least 50 years since I have seen it done (and probably more than that) so I may not have remembered all of the steps, but if you get a chance, you need to try it.

Yeah, with all the bad stuff going around, brains are out for me as a food. But in a pinch, any animal that has enough muscle to cook can be eaten.
I grew up poor and can remember them butchering hogs. They used everything but the squeal. Times are different.

You couldn't eat the brains in my area for the fear of CWD in our area. We are told to butcher without cutting bones and stay away from the brain and spinal cord.

Listen, if you are squeamish about these dishes, I sure am, those hot dogs you love may put the whole thing into a different perspective. I once was called out on a weekend to check on an upcoming job at a rendering plant. I was a little hung over from a celebration on the previous night and feeling a little woozy. I was directed to a doorway leading to a centrifuge. The steaming pile of guts and I don't know what hit me like a slap in the face. I made it outside in time! I didn't eat a hotdog for quite a while after that episode. Give me rattlesnake or whatever before I am prepared to enter that room again.

I am surprised you fellas left out the venerable groundhog, they are a tasty morsel indeed. And so readily available. Make sure you get a nice young one and the roasting is on. Add a few taters and onyons, and ya'll is set for eatin.

I know a old native women that all she talks about during hunting season is mule deer brains she said she dont enjoy whittail brains as much as the mule deer. I can only imagine the price on a nice Kangaroo roast would be!

I've eaten lamb brains, and a friend's mother craves squirrel brains, but we've been told not to eat deer brains because of CWD. Too bad.

beaver meat is awesome, very sweet, tender meat. much, much better than muskrat.

I will resist a joke about eating beaver. But, where am I going to get kangaroo meat?
And I can't believe you left raccoon out of the mix.
With possum, You might consider parboiling it to get some fat off of it before you start stewing it the fat that comes to the top is, shall we say, unpleasant. It's almost as nasty as a derelict's feet after not bathing for a month.
Rattlesnake is good in chili, you ought to try that if you ever get a chance. I do want to know where the picture in #6 was taken, I would go there if it is close.

I'll bet that rattlesnake recipe will taste just as good with burmese python. Now if the State of Florida will just give us the OK to hunt those big snakes, I got a snake dog recipe.
