Time to cook up some burgoo!
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?

That would be Cajun cookin'.

Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

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.

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.
