Elephant Stew (Joke)

Ingredients

  • 1 Elephant
  • 2 Rabbits
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Cut elephant into small, bite-size pieces. This should take about 2 months. Add enough brown gravy to cover, cook over kerosene fire for about four weeks at 465 degrees F. This will serve 3800 people. If more are expected, two rabbits may be added but do this only if necessary as most people do not want to find hare in their stew.

Too funny, Copasetic! I wonder if the stew stores well in the freezer after cooking. ;-)

I don't know if I have enough jars to can this! Hmmm, each quart jar will hold approximately 2 pounds of food.

I really didn't believe you were serious about cooking a whale...LOL

My son said after hearing the whale songs during his trip to Alaska, they

had become a part of his soul. Interesting thought. Cute joke though. Thanks for the chuckles.

The recipe for Whale Stew submitted yesterday brought back fond memories of this hearty stew I made years ago. I haven't made it since because of the callouses I got on my fingers from dicing the elephant.

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium sized elephant
  • onions, peas, and carrots to taste
  • 2 rabbits

Directions:

Take 1 medium sized elephant, well skinned, and cut into bite-sized pieces. Roll in flour and brown in skillet. Two rabbits may be added but they are optional. Add onions, peas, and carrots.

Cook in 450 degree oven for 2 weeks.

If you expect more people, add the 2 rabbits, but most folks don't care for hares in their stew.
