1 elephant(not to old)
15 gallons brown gravy
10 lbs of pepper
12 lbs of salt
Cut elephant int small bite-sized pieces. That should take about 4-6 months. Add salt and Pepper and cover with brown gravy. Place concotion in a very large oven and cook at 700 degrees for one week until tender.
This recipe will serve 3,800 to 4,500 persons. If more guests are expected, add the rabbit. Do that only if necessary, as most folks don't like a hare in their soup.
Now you can not tell the amish don't have a sense of humor.
