In the October issue of F&S, editor-at-large Eddie Nickens wrote a story with tips on how to cook a few critters that, for one reason or another, have fallen out of fashion over the years. He explains how to cook merganser, groundhog, opossum, and more. Click here or on the photo to check out the story.

Personally, I’ve never tried any of these animals. That’s not to say I wouldn’t if given the chance. I’d like to think I’m pretty ballsy when it comes to trying new food. For instance, one the best barbecue meals I ever had was a pig snout sandwich. Just delicious.


How about you? What’s the strangest, wildest, or most bizarre critter you’ve every cooked and how did it taste? Feel free to share your recipe in the comments section.
