    Got pesky rabbits eating your garden? annoying squirrels? SOLUTION!

    Primal Fuel
    I have an opossum living in my garage, which makes the entire building smell worse than a barn. I also can't grow beans, because the rabbits eat them as soon as they sprout. Luckily, I found a solution in my mom's original edition Joy of Cooking (first published in the 1930s).





    SO HELPFUL. Now, how's the omega-3 profile of possum?

    I stand corrected, possum should be roasted for best results. WILD GAME: FROM FIELD TO TABLE

    That would be Cajun cookin'.

    I've got a # of my Mom's cookbooks from the 1930-40's. Lottsa lard cookery as well as hard-to-find game and nasty bits.

    The new editions are a giant fail. I accidentally bought the 1998 edition, realized, and took it right back.

    If it doesn't have an illustrated guide on how to skin and gut a rabbit, I don't want it. I read those sections for entertainment when I was 7 or 8.

    It's how my great-grandparents cooked in the boonies of New England in the 20's or '30s. Their mom turned the fur from the rabbits into mittens for all the kids. Good times.

    I've had both rabbit and squirrel. The rabbit was good, but the squirrel was a little tough (maybe it was an old one). Never had possum, though. I suppose if you seasoned and roasted it, it might be ok.

    I think that it's sometimes easier to either braise or stew game animals, since (depending on the time of year) they can be very lean and dry out easily. It helps to keep the meat tender.
