I ate groundhog for the first time a couple weeks ago. At first I was hesitant, but then once I thought about it I dug right in. This animal eats plants, grass, insects, and other creepy crawly things. It must be delicious. It was! It had a texture a lot like chicken and a flavour unique to its’ own. The only downfall was that it had very little meat on it. Such is the mind of a North American used to double-breasted chickens that have heart attacks when their little hearts can’t carry them anymore. In the end, the time it took to skin, dress, butcher and cook this little animal was worth the effort and helped me appreciate food and where it comes from a little bit more.
