Directions:
Cut elephant into small pieces. Place in a rather large pot. Add water and salt, making sure to cover all the pieces. Cook over charcoal briquettes indirectly for about 3 months or until desired doneness. Add the vegetables at the last moment. Serves approximately 5,000 people. If more people than you cooked for show up, then add the 3 rabbits, but only if necessary! (the reason is that most people don't like to find a hare in their stew).
