Cook this in a covered pot or Dutch oven. The pimentos will look like bloody meat and the slivered almonds will look like broken bones or teeth.
Now there’s one other thing you must do, for sure. Get rid of the bottle of skunk scent. A lady friend of mine had some in her home and her teenage son took it to school where he “accidentally spilled” some in the hot air duct coming from the furnace.
They had a big panic, school was cancelled, some kids claimed they were sick and had to go to the hospital and police were called. When her son was discovered to be the perpetrator, he was expelled and she was called in to have a conference with the school administrators and the police – who didn’t see the humor in the incident.
A good way to get rid of the leftover skunk scent is to give it to a deer hunter. Hunters claim that if they get all “stunk up” with skunk scent, the deer will come close enough so they can shoot them with an arrow or slug.
