  • Anyone have a recipe for these?

    Coz I ain't gonna kill it if I ain't gonna eat it.

    Yes, I stopped and took a cell phone pic of it. Then Dad ushered it back to the ditch with a few prods of a branch. People go out of their way to run over these critters.



    Here's a pic of one I took last year:

    Rattler? Put it in a soup, chili, or a stew. Or just sear it up (full cook, kill germs) and add lemon and black pepper.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

        We killed a couple snakes. Fried them up like wings, then put them in tequila-lime sauce. Yumz.

          I imagine you would probably need to know how to remove the poison sacks/glands, wherever the heck the poison is produced. Unless you don't mind dying a horrible death, that is.

            Should be right up near the head. Poisonous snakes generally have a wedge/arrow shaped head, because of the glands.

              It might make a nice glaze.

                So, just chop off the head and they're OK to eat? You're sure the gland doesn't go further down into the body? Have you done this personally with poisonous snakes? (Want to be totally sure just in case someone offers me a juicy, freshly killed rattler.)

                    Yup, pretty much. I always liked anatomy class, disecting animals and stuff like that. I guess somehow I always knew it would come in handy.

                      I often wondered why biology lab classes didn't have students dissect tomatoes, eggplant, stringbeans, etal. Seems like they are failing to fully educate our youth.

                      If the rejoinder is that they teach that area of dissection in home ec., why don't the home ec students learn to skin, clean, and break down a moose, too?

                      Same thing, isn't it?

                          HOLY CRAP I nearly had a heart attack when I saw that pic. I have a terrible phobia of snakes.

                            Just kidding!

                            Edit: Besides, I bet you could charm a snake easy with those eyes of yours. How you doin'?

                              Sorry, DR, but this is my inner pedant again - rattlers are venomous, but NOT poisonous (I'd not want to eat a poisonous snake). AFAIK, there are only 3 species of poisonous snake (those which WILL kill you) - the Inland Taipan, the Australasian Sea Snake and the Banded Sea Snake.

                              The rest will just make you very ill, or cause a nasty wound. The bite of a constrictor may also kill you, but that's down to the bacteria in its mouth, obviously, not because it has venom glands.
