Can you eat Swan?
In Maryland they are about to start a big culling of Mute Swans. I was wondering if there was any recipies for this type of bird. Would you treat it like goose? They eat water grasses exclusively, from what I have heard, so they should be palatable.

Anyone with experience?

I' ve never cooked a swan myself; but I imagine that you would treat it much like a duck, since they are both waterbirds. The swan proably has a layer of fat similar to a duck, so DON' T smoke it....that was a bad experience!

If all else fails just cook it up, whether by boiling or baking, and serve it to the faithful four-legged companion that probably retrieved it. Minus the bones, of course. I mix a lot of my extra game with their dogfood. It eliminated a lot of guilt as to just throwing it out.
