– Florida woman makes her Christmas Cookies with Python Eggs
Sarkes has not published a Sarkes Corner for several weeks. Sarkes had previously taken a Mental Health pause after the Presidential Election in November, and thought that he had recovered enough to lead the Staff of Sarkes Corner to publish the important, relevant, and high quality, Sarkes Corners that the Public has expected for years.
Alas, Sarkes had a relapse and had to take a second Mental Health pause. You see, the Orange Victim continues to dominate the daily news cycle with claims of massive voter fraud, a stolen election, scores of challenges in Federal Courts, talk of Marshall Law, and, when the Do-Nothing Congress finally passed 2 significant pieces of legislation; Military Funding and Covid Relief/Government Funding, the Orange Victim has refused to sign.
With the expiration of Federal Aid, Sarkes had to give his Sarkes Corner Staff notice of possible Pink Slips if Federal Aid is not forthcoming. The issuance of Pink Slips to the Crack Sarkes Corner staff caused Sarkes much angst.
But back on point. Sarkes decided to publish a more positive Christmas story, and what better feel good story than one that is about Christmas Cookies. Who doesn’t love Christmas Cookies?
Anyone can publish a feel good Christmas article about beautiful, tasty, Christmas Cookies. But Sarkes, a Literary Genius, seeks the story that needs to be told, stories that you will not find on Page 1 of notable News Sources. Here, Sarkes reports on how a Florida Woman makes her Christmas Cookies with Python Eggs.
Sarkes provides a brief history of the Pythons found in the Florida Everglades. The Burmese Python is not native to Florida. Pythons are believed to have appeared in the Florida Everglades in the early 1980s, having been kept as pets and then released by frustrated owners who got tired of feeding them mice and other live meals. In the Everglades, the Pythons found perfect conditions; plenty of water in which to mate and abundant food. The Pythons in the Everglades have no natural predators, which has led to high reproduction rates. Female Pythons can lay up to 100 eggs a year, with each egg measuring up to 5 inches.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission have sponsored Python Hunts in the Everglades paying a bounty for each Python killed. Donna Kalil is a veteran python hunter who just bagged snake number 470 since she joined the python elimination program.
Donna Kalil is not only a proficient Python Hunter, she is also an award winning Python Chief. Like all Great White Hunters in America, Kalil eats what she kills. The Python is called the “chicken of the Glades”. Kalil is known for making meals, snacks and even sweets from her bounty. During this holiday season, Kalil has made; Python Jerky, Python Grits, Python Pasta, Python Sliders, and Christmas Cookies made with snake-yolk dough. Kalil’s top cooking tip: “Don’t overcook python. It’s really tricky to get it right. It takes practice.”
But one must proceed with caution. You see, the Florida Everglades have high levels of Mercury which the Florida Python absorbs. Kalil suggests that if one wants to cook and eat Python, to use a home testing kit to check mercury levels.
Nothing spoils a great batch of Christmas Cookies faster than Mercury poisoning.
