No, I looked it up online asking for recipes for porcupine. I had just written a story about when my daughter served porcupine to me and then decided to look up on the internet. It seems that it is poular in Alaska and very Northern states, check it out!Thanks and have a good day and let me know what you find out about it too.

As I was writing the last story I wondered about how you would cook a porcupine for real. I looked it up and was surprized at how many ways they had listed to prepare them. In a crock pot, grounded up as a burger, roasted, battered and fried, They said it was a red meat and had a lot of protien in the meat. I don't even know if there are porcupines loose here where we live in Texas and it seemed strange to me to eat one but when I get to thinking about it I guess those who have never eaten an armadillo would think that is strange also. I cannot help but wonder how a real porcupine would taste. Anyone out there have a good recipe for porcupine? I will swap it for an armadillo recipe. I can tell you how to clean it also. It seems as if both of theses animals are skinned starting at the stomach, but the armadillo has a hard shell instead of quills. They are very fast unlike the porcupines that move very slowly. Oh well I just could not help after all these years to look up a real porcupine recipe. Thanks and have a good day, Donna No, I am not kidding, Ireally did see an article about eating them.
I found these comments:
*%$% is the one who recommended porcupine. He said it tasted like bacon.

Porcupine Stew

1 Porcupine carcass [butchered
1/2 c Vinegar
8 c Water
1 Beef bouillon cube
2 ts Salt
1 lg Carrot [chopped]
2 sm Onions [chopped]
1/2 Green bell pepper [chopped]
3 tb Flour
1/4 c Water
8 oz (1 can) Corn [drained]
4 c Rice [cooked]


Soak the porcupine in a mixture of water (to cover) & vinegar in a large bowl for 1 hour, drain and pat dry. Then place it in a stock pot and add 4 cups of water, cook for 4-5 hours `til the meat falls off the bones, using additional water as necessary. Cool and debone.

Combine 4 c water, beef cube, salt and pepper to taste, carrots, onions, and green pepper in a large saucepan and cook for 15 min. Then add the meat and cook for 10 min.

Blend the flour and the remaining 1/4 c water and stirr into the stew, add the corn and simmer for 5 min. stirring constantly.

Serve over hot cooked rice with hot rolls or french bread and grated cheese

Marinated Porcupine Chops

6 Porcupine chops
3 Fingers coltsfoot salt
1 qt Maple sap
2 sm Wild onions
4 Wild leeks


Pour the sap in a birch bark container or other non-metallic container. Cut up the onions into small pieces and add to the sap. Place the porcupine chops one at a time into the solution, placing one wild leek between the chops. Let stand overnight in a cool place. In the morning grease the stone griddle with fat and remove the chops from the marinade and fry on the griddle. Serve on hot cornmeal cakes.

I do not recommend these I just put them here to show the recipe. I have never eaten them just the fake porcupine my daughter served me in the last story. I did see a bear recipe too. Thanks for reading and have any of you ever eaten porcupine for real> Have a good day, Donna

I totally agree, I just hope no one actully serves me the real porcupine dish. My daughter had me thinking she was feeding her kids this only to find out it was hamburger rolles up in a meatball with rice around it. That was my previous story. Like I said it got me to thinking, do people really eat them? Yes some folks do. But I guess some folks wonder if we really eat armadillos, we have many times and it was good. Thanks for reading and have a good day.
