I spent the weekend with my mother and was unable to access my blog to post this on time.
This year, I’m trying to do more cooking…something that has always been done for me, both to take a bit off my husband’s shoulders and to be able to fen for myself when he will be away for a while later this year. While looking through a well-known cookbook, one that has a large variety of recipes, I stumbled on this recipe. Not so sure about the meat, but it sure served up a good laugh for my mom and me. And humor is so nourishing on a Monday, isn’t it?
If anyone tries this, please don’t tell me about it, okay?
If possible, trap possum and feed it with milk and cereals for 10 days before killing. Clean, but do not skin. Immerse unskinned animal in water just below the boiling point. Test frequently by plucking at the hair. When it slips out readily, remove the possum from the water and scrape. ..remove red glands in small of back and under each foreleg between the shoulder and the rib. Parboil one hour then roast. Serve with turnip greens.
Have a happy week.
