The other day I got a comment from a lady named Emily on the Aspirin Cake I posted back in August of 2012 and she mentioned how she loved to get in the kitchen and cook with her kids and she had shared that recipe many a time with them. This is another story that I thought I had posted long ago but for some odd reason or another, I can’t find it and thought it would be another great one to share with the kids. My granddaughter Chey, can also share it with her son when he gets old enough to help out in the kitchen as she is a lover of elephants. Oops, maybe not such a good idea as she hates the idea of killing anything even though she loves eating meat! You’d think she’d become a vegetarian or something of the sort, ha ha….
- 1 medium sized elephant
- 12 lbs pepper, I use fresh ground
- 40 lbs salt, I use sea salt
- 2 rabbits (optional)
- Brown gravy
- Clean elephant and cut into bite-size pieces; this should take about 2 months.
- Add enough brown gravy to cover and cook over kerosene fire for 4 weeks at 465 degrees.
- This will serve about 3,800 people.
- If more are expected, add the 2 rabbits; do this only if necessary as most people do not like HARE in their stew!
I’ve seen this recipe in a few of the older cookbooks I have but this one is from Healthy Recipes For You by the 7th district school food service of Douglas County Comprehensive High School. Thought it would be cute with the Easter bunny getting ready to come hoppin down the bunny trail! Hope it brings a smile to your face if you have never seen it before!
