Found on the Back: Roasted Raccoon

In which I most certainly do NOT roast a raccoon.

I have amazing siblings.  They are crazy talented and supportive.  My sister is one of the nicest people I know.  She constantly goes out of her way for other people.  She actively tries to make the world a better place.  My brothers almost have to be spoken about as one unit, but mostly because the world still confuses them.  One of them works in energy efficiency and has published many articles and papers about the subject.  The other works in theater.  He is working on his first movie and is getting his first IMDB credit, or he would be, except somehow his brother is listed on IMDB instead.  The twin curse…

Anyway, my brother suggested at one point that each of my siblings do a guest post for me.  I readily agreed and mentioned that all they had to do was tell me what sort of recipe they wanted and I would hook them up with the goods.  “What do you want?  Entree?  Dessert?  Roasted Raccoon?”  My brother jumped all over the idea of making a roasted raccoon.  He attempted to source one.  His friend actually came through.  Unfortunately, making a movie and being away from an actual kitchen sort of put a damper on this.  Well, that and the “ew” factor.  As he was attempting to source a raccoon, he heard from multiple people about how sick eating raccoon had made them (probably because it wasn’t cleaned properly).

Regardless, I mentioned this recipe as a joke.  I don’t actually expect that anyone will make it.  If anyone does, I think I want to try it, but I’m unlikely to ever actually make this recipe myself.

I’m still waiting for them to actually get to the point of guest posting…(hint, hint).  Roast Raccoon

  1. Just in case anyone is thinking of actually doing this, there is a roundworm in some wild racoons that is very dangerous for humans. It can be contacted through fluids or feces. We learned this when we were cleaning out our barn and had to have some droppings tested. Sorry to get so graphic on this lovely food blog. The recipe is a stitch! Maybe your brother would consider squirrel stew….. 🙂

  2. Love you, Annie. Being the baby of our family, I never had to do much of the cooking. It makes me nervous to do a guest column since all I really eat are tacos and peanut butter sandwiches….. I’m a woman of simple tastes. I will not ever be cooking a raccoon. Or eating one.
