Xmas Gift

I think I figured out what happens when there is a downturn in the market for Alpaca wool products.

This is one of the things I got in the family gift exchange this year. All of the items from the person that had my name were Alpaca products. Inner sole liners made from Alpaca wool, the above jerky and some sausage like Slim Jims only made from Alpaca.

Alpaca ain't bad. The jerky and the sausage are kinda like the stuff made from beef. Coulda used a little more spices for my taste, but hey, it's still edible.

I've eaten in a Peruvian restaurant, but I didn't see either Llama or Alpaca on the menu. Maybe they can't get a good supply of the meat in this country. I imagine most of the people that raise the animals wouldn't want to see them go to slaughter for meat. Obviously not all feel that way.


  1. how can you eat anything with such a cute face?

  2. I didn't see the face. But I guess you can tour the ranch in Colorado where they are grown and processed. Alpacas kinda remind me of sock puppets.

    Lamb and veal have cute faces and people eat them. I eat lamb but not veal. The texture of veal isn't quite right to suit me.

  3. George Carlin said we choose the animals we like and we get to eat the rest.
