How do I Preserve a shark jaw? I buried it for a week & the meat is soft. Should I boil it? Then cut the meat off the bone?

Thanks Rich

What you are about to end up with is a stinkin jaw with half the teeth in the ground. You have to let the gums air dry to old the teeth. ZCut and scape all the meat off and position and air dry the jaw in the position you want it. Another option woulfd be to freeze dry it but you still want to get all meat that you can off.
