According to Rabbi Eidlitz’s book, "Is It Kosher?", Absolute Civet is secreted from a receptacle between the anus and the genitals of cats.
Sounds yummy to me.
I wonder how this miraculous flavoring material was discovered?
According to this Oregon State website: Flavoring derived from the unctuous secretion from the receptacles between the anus and genitalia of both male and female civet cats. Semisolid, yellowish to brown, with an unpleasant, acrid, bitter taste. Used in raspberry, butter, caramel, grape, and rum flavorings for beverages, ice cream, ices, candy, baked goods, gelatin desserts, and chewing gum. A fixative in perfumery. No known toxicity.
