Cliffracer Tails

Kill a half dozen cliff racers. Much of their meat is inedible or extremely tough, but their tails are fatty and tolerable.
Gather a dozen trama roots.
Fill a pot with water and start it boiling over a fire. Add the trama root. In shifts, let the water boil a day or more until the trama roots are soft.
Add the cliff racer tails and cook until browned all the way through.
Remove from the fire and let it cool a little.
Remove the roots and tails. Mush one root on each plate and put one tail over the top. Ladle a little of the water over it. Sprinkle some bittergreen so the pilgrims will think the flavor is intentional.
