How to Cure Rat Meat roof rats, roof rats, roof rats roof rats, roof rats, roof rats


This recipe was originally intended for wild game, such as venison or boar, but works surprisingly well with roof rat meat. roof rats, roof rats, roof rats roof rats, roof rats, roof rats

This is probably best with 9 -12 well aged rats. First you need a crock that is big enough to hold the rats you want to cure.  First make the brine. roof rats, roof rats, roof rats

For three gallons of brine, add to your crock: roof rats, roof rats, roof rats roof rats, roof rats, roof rats

1 1/2 lb. Kosher Salt, 5 oz. Sugar, 2 Tbs. Peppercorns, 1 Tbs. Whole Cloves
6 Bay Leaves, 10 Tbs. Pickling Spices, 2 Onions, Sliced , 12 Cloves Garlic, crushed, 10 Small Hot Dry Red Chiles, and enough cold pure water to make three gallons.

Stir until sugar and salt are dissolved. Add rats, do not pack tightly, they need some room. A half ounce or so of Nitrate is protection against the possibility of Botulism. When the rats are in the crock, cover them with a plate, and put something on the plate heavy enough to ensure the rats will stay submerged in the brine. Tie a cloth over the top of the crock to keep out bugs. Store in a cool spot. Turn the rats every few days. A scum of white mold may form on top, but that is normal. The rats will be ready to cook in 2-3 weeks. What you don't use immediately freezes well.

TIP: when cooking Roof Rats, pre-soaking up to 5 hours helps take away that pesky rodent flavor. AND the longer you cook it, with the other ingredients, the better.
