Thanks for good serious recipes , Just remember possum can be prepared like any good fatty pork roast, same seasons.
Young possum must be live trapped caged and fed on a grain/cornbread etc. for a few weeks until fat.
Save grease from baking to flavor like you would pork grease,'ala' possum grits,biscuits,cornbread.
thanks again.
