    2                    skunks -- skinned and cleaned
    1      tablespoon    salt
                         water to cover
    2      cups          bear fat or lard
    2                    egg yolks,beaten
    3      cups          milk or cream
    1 1/2  cups          flour
      1/2  teaspoon      salt
    2      tablespoons   baking pow
 Clean and wash the skunks, making sure that the scent glands are removed.  Cut
 up into small serving pieces.  Put a soup kettle on the stove and add the
 meat.  Cover with cold water and bring to a boil over high heat.  Lower the
 heat and boil until the meat is tender, about 40 minutes.  Remove all the scum
 that rises to the surface.  Make a batter by mixing together the egg yolks,
 milk, flour, salt and baking powder.  Mix real good until the batter is about
 like cake batter.  Heat the bear fat or lard in a deep fryer to about 360
 degrees.  Dip the pieces of skunk in the batter and then fry them until golden
 brown.  Drain well and serve.  Yum, yum.
