“To kill an eel, seize it with a cloth and bang its head violently against a hard surface. To skin it, put a noose around the base and hang it up. Slit the skin in a circle just beneath the noose. Pull away a small portion of the skin, turn it back, take hold of it with a cloth and pull it down hard.”

......or fling it about a bit until you can slide it down your neck head first.

Great detail Keith, and very helpful instructions. We have a cottage on a lake back east, and the lake is full of eels, bass, trout, and catfish.Smile

Thanks guys and for the UA's - much appreciated.

Watch those eels, Denny - their blood, when raw, is toxic. Wink

Love V1. Really getting down to business. And thanks for the tip about eel blood; I was just about to defrost some for cocktails. Smile
