►SUBSCRIBE for 2 new videos per week: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe ►T-shirts and caps available now: https://migrationology.com/store/ Bushmeat is a term that is used to often describe wild game meat in Africa. And while there some types of bushmeat that are not good or unsafe to eat - grasscutter - also known as a greater cane rat, is safe and one of the most popular types of bushmeat to eat in West Africa. It’s a delicacy! So while we were driving on our way to Elmina, Ghana, along the side of the highway, we stopped at some hunters, and bought a grasscutter. Later in the day, we met up with our host family, and we drove over to the Elmina fishing market. The market was amazing, bright and colorful, and energetic, with some unique fish and seafood available from the Atlantic. We bought some fish to go along with our grasscutter, and then we continued back to the house to start cooking. First for lunch, Mama made us a dish called Eto, a mash up of yam and palm nut oil, topped with eggs. It was a little on the dry side for me, but it was an honor to have a chance to try that special Ghanaian dish. For dinner we prepared the fish and grasscutter. The fish was made into Ghanaian groundnut or peanut soup, which is one of the best dishes I at in Ghana. The grasscutter was made into a bushmeat grasscutter light soup which included chilies, garlic, onions, ginger, and tomato. Finally, for the main start of the meal Mama made omo tuo, Ghana style rice balls. How does grasscutter taste? The greater cane rats run around the fields and eat grass, so unsurprisingly some parts kind of taste like grass. But they are a white meat, and have a similar look to chicken, but the meat is even sweeter. It was also surprisingly fall apart tender. I thought it was amazing! Across West African food, grasscutter is a very popular meat, and a delicacy eaten on special occasions.

I know a bit fire kills all kind of things fire will kill anything but I will still be worried about eating a roten because that's just what it is it is in the rodent family you might as well eat a rat which people do eat rats bushmeat is very dangerous bushmeat Carey's all kind of germs parasites and diseases you can't just pick a bush animal and say oh this one is okay because you don't know what is caring

Wonder if he got the screaming "runs" after eating the "bush meat" Yellow Palm oil gives the Cassava / Yam a better flavour. The 'ground pea" if smoked / dried don't do a lot for the flavours.

All of you spoiled ,close minded ignorant Americans don't know crap.. you are all so blind to the food in your own country ...eating that fake food you call beef, and fake chicken nuggets ,and all that nasty fake fast food you all love ... half of the time you are all getting salmonella, ecoli, and all that other crap ... and the pig is the worst nasty animal to eat ,but I don't see yall saying you won't eat it though.. yall talk crap about other countries when you don't even know what is truly going on in your own country..

Come to Somalia
This is so horrible - the food and the environment are all dirty. Eating rats? You'll catch ebola. Mark Wiens, please do not feature any African food - they are yucchy. You are endangering your child and wife.

Trunkzdbz (13 days ago)
Disgusting, no forks, no spoons, preparing food outside on the dusty, dirty ground. Might as well ask to get Aids/Sar's/and Ebola all at once, no wonder Africa has all the worst diseases imaginable, they are the filthiest people in the world. I wouldn't eat a thing from these dirty people, McDonald's is fine dining compared to this cess-pooll outhouse African food.

Eating food by hand is the best...
Adwoa Amuah (14 days ago)
I like this guy. I really do. The grass cutter meat is a delicacy in Ghana. I love it. I really do. I prefer it in light soup. Extra spicy. As for et) (your first yam dish), It can be served in so many ways, with different variations of veggies to make it all colourful. You made the right choice by eating at home. You would have paid an arm and a leg for bush meat in a restaurant. Do come to Ghana again and try another meal.
