Elephant Stew Recipe

Today was the annual Christmas Bazaar at St. Henry’s Catholic Church.  My purchases were simple.  Chocolate cupcakes for Jermel, an employee of my hubby’s, and a cookbook for my Aunt Betty.  Betty~ if you read this, be surprised!  The book consists of recipes from the members and is awesome.  I thought I’d share a couple of them with you.  Aunt Betty, quit reading now!

Bailey’s Irish Cream, submitted by Fr. Richard Bradley, Pastor

2 eggs

1 can sweetened condensed milk

2 tsp fudge topping

1/2 pint whipping cream

1 cup Whiskey

1/4 tsp coconut extract (optional)

Blend all ingredients at high-speed for 1 minute.  Refrigerate.  Will keep up to six months. Ya wanna bet?

Elephant Stew submitted by Virginia Helm 

1 elephant

salt and pepper

2 rabbits (optional)

Cut elephant into bite size pieces.  This should take about 2 months.  Add enough brown gravy to cover.  Cook over kerosene stove about 4 weeks at 450 degrees F.  This will feed 3800 people.  If more are expected, two rabbits may be added, but do so only if necessary.  most people do not like hares in their stew.

I don’t know about you, but I’d like to meet Virginia Helm. 🙂

Have a great “rest” of the weekend.  Be nice to people!  ♥

  1. Love the Elephant Stew recipe! Thanks for the smiles!

  2. Hi, Paula! I think you left out the espresso powder in your Baileys recipe. And, if you did and you’re going to make some, I’ve got two jars…can send you one!

    OMG – that elephant stew recipe is the same one my grandma submitted to every cookbook that any charity group ever compiled back home. She also said that the only way to eat an elephant was one bite at a time:) Thanks for sharing that – I gotta go dig up a cookbook!

  4. Haha you just know that someone will try it!

  5. I am behind the times, too. This was new to me, and I thought it was hysterical. I’m sending the recipe to my mother! … Aren’t those church cookbooks just the best!

    I love bazaars, and participate in them often — as a volunteer worker and/or shopper.

    I am looking for a good chocolate cake recipe that does not contain baking powder. There are so many recipes out there….it is daunting…!

  7. Virginia is my kind of cook and so is the pastor–jeez at the church I used to go to, we drank grape juice for communion (which is both a good and bad thing-lol)

    I remember having a cookbook when I was little that had that same elephant stew recipe in it. I used to be so confused by it. I once asked my mom where we could buy an elephant to make it!

  9. Ha! that made me smile. Thanks, Virginia Helm and thanks, Paula 🙂

    Hare or not, I’ve heard that elephant is chewy and tastes like chicken and I’m off chicken so I am giving it a miss. But thanks for the Bailey’s recipe. My mum and I are forever toasting something or someone (not the elephant) with a bit of Bailey’s. 🙂
