Cant Believe this..

Well, my father just got home from a business trip to texas and brings me home a post card. Well, first thing I see is a rattlesnake.. so I thought it might be interesting. Heres what it read..

TEXAS RATTLE SNAKE RECIPE

Skin snake by cutting through the skin and peeling it back until you have completly skinned the snake. Cut into 3 or 4 inch pieces. Roll the snake cuts in a mixture of cornmeal and flour seasoned with salt and pepper. Dip into a mixture of egg and milk. Dredge in cornmeal mixture again. Saute in hot oil until browned on all sides. SERVE WITH SALSA!

Brandon, you might also remember some cultures would be horrified at our recipies for beef stew. It might have been a little tasteless and inapropriate to give it to you. Do you know if he even read the back?

I would prob taste some if I had a chance. As much as I love reptiles, it can't be any worse than eating beef or any other living animal.

We see rattle snakes as exotics, really majestic creautres and all. But down in Texas, they are pests! You know, to a culture, if we eat beef, we should be punished, where as we see beef as normal. We feed mice to snakes, where as some mouse lover wouldn't allow that, or hate against it. We have dogs as pets, some parts of the world, its protein. Its just a matter of locality and whats happenin' in your mind really. I went to this restuarant last year in Texas called Papadeaux's ( at least I think it was sitll Texas ) and I ate Alligator, and I'll tell you, its amazing meat. I ate frog legs last year in Mexico, another awesome meat. Basically, on this world, whatever has meat on it, is potential food... gotta view it with an open mind, and gotta see the bigger picture...

Just my two cents

I have eaten alot of exotic meats, including rattlesnake. When I was younger I really enjoyed hunting and always ate the meat. Traveling in different countries has added bat, rat, dog, monkey, and quite a few insects to my culinary experience. Here in the southern states alligator, turtle, crayfish, snake, and rabbit are common fare in some areas.

I would totally eat rattlesnake or anything else for that matter as long as it was raised for that purpose or is OVERLY abundant in the wild.

What exactly is balute? My sources describe it as a fermented chicken egg that has a partially developed embryo. Sounds like an aquried taste.
