Bon Appétit, Volume 10 - Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Møøse

When, like me, you're fortunate enough to receive a whole moose for your birthday, you'll want to use everything but the squeal. Over the years, I've developed recipes to do just that. Try these out for your next party and you'll be the høøstess with the møøsetest.

1. Amøøse Bouche

Pluck and devein your møøse. Carefully remove and homogenize the dewlap and let stand at room temperature. Meanwhile, mix four teaspoons curry powder, a pint of molasses, and one pound asparagus-flavored gelatin. When gelatin is set, stir in dewlap. Scoop into margarita glasses and serve immediately.

Serves 13.

2. Møøsepacho

Preheat microwave to "defrost." While preheating, dice hooves into one-inch squares and add Clamato juice to cover. Mince seven rutabagas and add to hoof mixture. Gradually stir in a dash of mercury and a pinch of snuff. Heat until molten. Season liberally with Adderall and garnish with an onion.

Serves 2.

3. Møøsenpfeffer

Using a meat tenderizer or shovel, pound one haunch until tired. Thoroughly coat with a mixture of equal measures granulated marble, cardamon, and fleece. In a small sauce pan, bring to a simmer three gallons imitation artificial vanilla extract, a handful of wheat, and a cracker. Braise haunch in vanilla sauce until medium rare. Carve against the grain and serve atop broasted flan.

Serves 9.

4. French Apple Møøse

Thinly slice seventeen French apples. Using nonreactive tongs, insert apples into møøse gullet. Carefully seal top of gullet with 8-pond-test fishing line. Chill overnight, removing from refrigerator twenty minutes before serving. Using any standard gullet knife, cut into individual servings. Top with Bactine and accompany with warm cheese.

Serves 52.

5. Long Island Møøse Tea

Stir together two pints liquid møøse, one liter gin, five jiggers kirschwasser, and cough syrup to taste. Shake vigorously until thoroughly blended. Serve over peppered ice with a garnish of Chiclets and roe.

Serves 4 1/2.

This is the stuff! I am particularly fond of the moosepacho. With the Clamato, it's a very traditional Canadian dish, and it's in season.

Hair of The Moose.

Thoroughly and affectionately chill: 2 bottles Norwegian Tequila, 3 bottles bathtub gin, and 7 pints of MD 20/20.

Torpidly stir into gas can with seventeen over-ripe olives, fake ice cubes, and a three nearly full bottles of Manischevitz, imported into Canadia and brought right back again, to fool the Mounties.

Place alongside moose carcass for two disgusting hours, allowing both to breathe lustily. Discard moose (see Snag's recipe book)

Pour into used sneaker or football helmet. After cleaning that up, pour some more into a dirty glass. Light. Drink. Put yourself out, then remember to put out the drink before tasting.

Serves one. For several hours. Notify next of kin.

What about croque-møøsieur?

Braise antlers in a slow-cooker, then stir in equal parts whipping cream and vicodin.

Serve on a slab of warm asphalt. Best with a dry Zinfandel or six gallons of Sloe Gin.

I love Møøsenpfeffer!!!

Also, I'm so glad you stressed the importance of homogenizing the dewlap. This is often the first shortcut that people take and it's the one step that really is the moost important.

But beware: stocks may be depleting.

I'm not sure what the Three Møøseketeers would think about this.

I am more of a fan of the Moosegria. It packs a bit more punch and gets me on the floor quicker.

Mendacious D said...

This would be the kosher version with Manischevitz, I presume?
