HIPPOPOTAMUS

Hippopotamus

A mode of cooking a dish of hippopotamus, discovered by Sir Samuel Baker, is well worth bearing in mind. Speaking of it, he says:

'I tried boiling the fat flesh and skin together, the result being that the skin assumed the appearance of the green fat of the turtle, but is far superior. A piece of the head thus boiled and then soused in vinegar, with chopped onions and cayenne pepper and salt, throws brawn completely in the shade.’
