“I discovered this recipe at fooddownunder.com. It differs from the one posted by Mirj, so I'm submitting it here as in my opinion one can never have too many camel recipes. I have definitely NOT adjusted this one to suit my family's tastes! Yield amount was not given, but I'm guessing an entire subdivision. I'm estimating on preparation time as I have no idea how long it takes to scale 1 carp, let alone 20; pit-digging is also not included in preparation time.”
