And how does gator jerky compare to pork rinds?

Aunty Belle said...

Well, it ain't crunchy, more chewy as ya' might gather,but the flavor is fine. Wonder if ya can make gator bacon?

Here is what I love about alligator: it's tasty (love it deep fried) AND it makes a quality handbag and good pair of shoes.

Now, if only you Flo-ridians could catch all those wayward pythons and do the same thing, we wouldn't need cattle ranching!

*Ya Gotta Love Florida* Yes, ma'am, that's right an' true!

An' love me some gator tail! I particularly look forward, each year, to the Seminoles' annual Gator dinner. ;)

Moi, we'll always need our cattle ranches! They're purt near the only decent thang left around Dismal World. (Don't even get me started on pythons and other alien invasives!)

Oh my! Think I'll leave the gator jerky to y'all! No gators up here in Washington. But you could probably find some bear jerky if your heart was set on it...

Good afternoon Aunty Belle,

Well I love a good piece of alligator. But Florida doesn't have a lock on eclectic swings in dining. In Maryland you can go from fine dining at ego alley in Annapolis and an hour later enjoy some of the fine muskrat fixings at the Maryland’s Miss Outdoors Pageant

Gator Jerky - what an opportunity! Back when I lived in gator habitat they were still protected. All you saw was boiled peanuts offered.

Around here you are more likely to see elk jerky offered, but it will be farm raised. Not legal to sell wild wildlife neat. Our swanky restaurants are rarer, however. Soon to be off looking for some of that jerky, but sure hope it cools down some first!

Oh, BTW Karl announced this week's haiku winner - a new player. You can find her blog address in his comments section.

After finishing a fine little chuckle I had a little tear. Sure, I've eaten gator before, if not jerky yet. I'm just not sure if it is proper to consume critters that are that close to being kin? :p
