Directions:
Find a fresh moose nose. Clean out the nostrils with salt water. Burn the hair off the nose and scrape clean. Cover the nose in a large pot with fresh water. Boil for 4 1/2 hours in salted water and in the last hour add the lily roots and onions. Serve hot cutting nose in to bite- size chunks.

Personal Notes:
Burning the hair off is, traditionally, done by an elder over a campfire. A blow torch will also work. Make sure this is done down-wind and quite a distance from where anyone is living. Scraping the hide smooth while rinsing often will minimize the burnt-hair effect on the finished product. I am not sure if this has ever been tried, but I would suggest a red-hot buffalo wing sauce would make this dish a cross-cultural wonder.
