Carol’s Coon
Take one large coon, skin and clean being sure to remove musk glands from legs. Put coon in large roasting pan and cover with water. Put 4 large yellow onions, 2 complete stalks of celery, tops included and salt and pepper to taste. Boil the coon until very tender. Pour off all liquid and set aside. Discard onions and celery.Prepare 1 quart of brown gravy and pour over coon in roasting pan. Place 8-10 large sweet potatoes (already cooked) around coon and cover. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
Prepare large pot of turnip greens and 3-4 black skillets of cornbread. Place kitchen towel at each place amt and 2 pots of hot water on table because there will be grease from ear to ear on each guest when the bottom of the pan is licked. There is no better way to cook a coon!!
