Roast badger

(Recipe #15, page 150)

A young badger is reputed to be very tender and palatable, similar to pork tenderloin. Let it stand 2–3 days in vinegar with onions, carrots, sage, all kinds of kitchen herbs, bay leaves, pepper, cloves, and salt. Lard and roast it like a young rabbit but for a shorter time, because of its tender meat.
