Mildly nauseous at this story on the wire at Reuters……Chinese “trucking” live rats to southern restaurants. Now… I don’t know about you but I can’t imagine a sauce that would make me want to tackle this…….
“The buyers offered 6 yuan for a kg, but as to where they will sell the rats, they would not say,” the newspaper quoted a local resident as saying, adding that villagers had to catch the rats alive.
“If we want to do that, there is no problem. We could catch 150 kg of rats in one night…but we will not do this against our conscience,” the villager was quoted as saying.
Some Guangdong restaurants were promoting “rat banquets”, charging 136 yuan (8.80 pounds) for one kg of rat meat, the newspaper said.
Anybody got an interesting recipe? <shiver>
