Grew with a dad from south Mississippi who had a desire to make sure I tried just about hillbilly "food" ever contrived! Turtle ranked down there below possum and raccoon! Never quite acquired a taste for some of those fine belly draggin' critters! roll_eyes confused

Take my word for it Brother Bob-racoon & opossum i have tried and would never again, but the turtle soup specially with that recipe is some of the best eatin' you could imagine. And it's got to be loggerhead or snappin turtle. The regular OL'(HELP ME MR. WIZARD lol444 happy2-i crack myself up ), Terrapin or Box Turtle tastes terrible. Use to be in a Huntin' Club out in Taylor co. One of the members tried turtle stew with a few OL' box turtles and it gave most of us the scoots. peek eeks2
