I want to start out and say that cleaning Raccoon is a little tricky. When you skin them they have little glands at various spots on their body that secrete an oily like substance. So make sure you cut off the glands as your cleaning it.
1 raccoon, cleaned, skinned and quartered
4 cups water
2 cups beef broth
2 carrots, diced
2 medium yellow onions, cut into 1-inch chunks
1 stalk celery, diced
2 large potatoes, cubed
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
salt & pepper
Place the meat in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 hour. Remove meat and allow to cool (Discard water) Once cool remove the meat from the bones.
Add meat back to pot and add 2 cups of water, beef broth, carrots, onions, celery, potatoes and thyme. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cook until veggies are tender. Salt and pepper to taste.
