Baked Possum

Folks in the south don't mess around! If it swings, slithers, crawls, walks, runs or flies it can be fixed up for supper! What is the most exotic (AKA unusual or otherwise in modern day discarded as proper food) animal you have eaten? Here is a simple recipe for possum if you ever have the mind to try one...

Baked Possum
Serving Size: 2

1 possum
2 quarts water
2 tablespoons salt
4 cloves garlic, chopped fine
1 medium onion, chopped
1 teaspoon black pepper

Put possum in a pot with water, salt, garlic and onion. Simmer for 1 hour. Remove possum from pot, cut up and sprinkle with black pepper. Place in a baking dish and bake in oven at 350 degreed until slightly browned.
