Just to clarify, it wasn't actual raccoon meat that I used for the soup. It was actually a recipe for "Japanese "tanuki" or "raccoon-dog" soup, which is also erroneous in itself. The tanuki is a Japanese animal that resembles a cross between a raccoon and a dog, but is not related to either species. It's considered a symbol of good luck in the local culture.

In years gone by, its meat was used in making the soup. However, once vegetarianism came in vogue along with Buddhism, it was replaced by this plant-based material, konyako, or taro gelatin. ADoS quite liked its taste, but neither my uncle or myself were very fond of it. It has an odd smell and a texture similar to rubber.

I hadn't realized people actually ate raccoons, and assumed people would react with shock and horror. What a disappointment. :idiot:

I am, or was just a little while ago, eating sliced potatoes lightly fried in herbed olive oil with chicken breast marinated in Reggae Reggae sauce. And some freshly dug carrots left whole.

I am seriously considering making 'humble pie', or 'umble pie'. The Boy has expressed an interest in what offal tastes like (too much Hugh Fairly-Long-Name on the TV), so I've been looking for a way to make it. Mrs. H. point-blank refused to have anything to do with it.

A bowl of peas and gravy with some sausages lurking under the peas. Very tasty :zen:

I went to talk to the butcher today about (h)umble pie. He loved the idea, he will get me some offal and sweetbreads in, and he says to make a suet crust if you want to do it properly. Mrs. H. will have to make an omelette or something.
