Mammals taste good – except their guts and brains, which taste bad. After all, if God didn’t want us to eat cows he wouldn’t have made them so delicious. My only advice – don’t eat anything that one day might feature in a WWF wildlife calendar and you’ll see no Rhino horns or tiger wangers in the pictures below.

Moles – way too cute for most people to eat, although they're conveniently bite sized.

Canadian Seal Flipper Pie*

4 seal flippers (obviously)
1/2 cup diced pork fat
1 tsp flour
cold water
2 onions, chopped
1 tsp soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp worcester sauce
Soak flippers in water and soda for 1/2 an hour. Trim excess fat. Dip the flippers in seasoned flour and pan fry in the pork fat until browned. Add the chopped onion.
Make a gravy of flour, 1 cup water, and Worcester sauce. Pour over the flippers. Cover and bake in a moderate oven (350ºF) until tender.. which should be two to three hours. Cover with pastry and bake at 400ºF for 1/2 an hour.
