We all go fishing sometimes with a fish dinner in mind, but sometimes all we get is the :skunk:
When you have lots of lemons you make lemonade, right? So... seems appropriate that if you get the :skunk: you fry it up. Think positive and only good things can follow. :wink:

Fried :skunk: Recipe

2 :skunk: :skunk: skinned and cleaned
1 tbsp. salt
Water to cover
2 cups bear fat or lard
2 egg yolks, beaten
3 cups milk or cream
1-1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp baking powder

Clean and wash the :skunk: , making sure the scent glands are removed (very important).
Cut into small serving size pieces.
Put a soup kettle on the stove and add the meat.
Cover with cold water and bring to a boil over high heat.
Lower the heat and boil until the meat is tender, about 40 minutes.
Remove all the scum that rises to the surface of the water.
Make a batter by mixing together the egg yolks, milk, flour, salt and baking powder.
Mix real good until the batter is like cake batter.
Heat the bear fat or lard in a deep fryer to about 360 degrees F.
Dip the pieces of :skunk: in the batter and fry them in the deep fryer til golden brown.
Drain well and serve.

Enjoy....

My mom swears that the use of bear lard makes the best pie crust. My Grandma in Montana used it to make her pie crusts.
