Keeping it Real: Mice Pops

Terry Patano who owns and operates Doma Coffee Roasting Company with his wife Rebecca, just sent me this photo of two boys selling mice by the roadside in Africa. It was given to him by a supplier who had just returned from buying trip in Malawi.

Probably not as 'trying' as mice on a stick, but between Puerto Cortes and San Pedro Sulas (NorthEast Honduras) you have plenty of chances to buy roadside live Auguana with the mouth sewed shut...ready for grilling!

The meat is not that tasty though...and hard to work at eating. AND NO, it didn't taste like chicken (more like rattlesnake which seams kinda tasteless to me except for the seasoned fried breading)...although a good BBQ sauce would have made a world of difference!
