This was the biggest yet and a B… to clean. Normally get them to bite some channel locks and pull out far enough to cut neck…ugh, took a minute. Should have took some vice grips I guess and hung it. Tough one as I flip and cut feet off next but still a struggle, lol.
Maybe this is why…full of ping pong balls…still have to remove the hind quarters. Never seen so much fat on a turtle. Tossing those eggs in the saltwater with meat. Good to eat???
OTC, was able to see the turtles on my phone, that’s hilarious, lol.
Soaked for 24hrs in saltwater and gonna freeze. Other than the 46 eggs that I’m gonna try at some point soon…from what I have seen online, the whites stay jelly like even after boiling.
Have a couple pics here, the biggest piece of white on left is the neck. Other white meat comes from top of head and the tenderloins on top of shell. Ya gotta snip or cut the little ribs to cut them out.
Edit to say it is 6lbs of meat with bone…maybe 3 plus…meat…
EF, another one in freezer for now, but will post up pics when cooked.
Hey Fred, love the goat but wow, it must love me because it is on my heels non-stop, lol. And noisy when I leave. Hope when the second one arrives, it calms down…my luck, just gonna be in stereo,…The Grands are what make it worth it.
Oh man, you are in for a treat. Goats can be worse than dogs missing you! And they will recognise you. They are herd animals and having two will help on them bleating for you. They can be mischievous and will eat anything you don’t want them to. Good times and memories for the Grands. I love it when children get to see stuff like this. Do you alow them to participate in the butchering of the beavers, turtles and stuff? Teaching my grands how to clean fish, and grow and pick vegetables. My wife frowns on the butchering stuff, but I push it as much as possible.
Dude, you are bad man! I don’t turn down much , but I think my belly would have to be touching my back bone to try that…
