I've only got 1 recipe for Possum. It's called the "Dig a hole and fill it in" Recipe. I have trapped enough of these critters to know I never want to eat one, lol.

As I recall, (been fifty years, probably) it tastes a lot like fatty pork, I do remember, tho' that possums shouldn't be killed in the wild for the table. Instead, they should be captured and fed table scraps and other clean food for a few weeks until the carrion that they sometimes consume is out of their system.

I've had possum and muskrat (marshrabbit) and both were well prepared and very good. I hear nutria is also thought to be very good.

I've cooked many a wild duck and goose, and quite a lot of elk and venison.

Food from the wild can be very good.

I've heard possum has a sweet off taste......I've tried beaver, very good, a lot like deer venison. Caribou is good, buffalo is good, I'm thinking the bigger animal the better I've liked it. I'm not much for frogs legs or rabbit, but that is just me, sorry. ~Bliss

Possum is one of my favorite wild meats. I was raised eating possum. We had Possum Suppers a couple times a year and you'd be surprised at the folks that would come to the house for them. We cooked seven one time. All of it was eaten. We had mayors and city counsel men come for them. We kept the possums up for two or three weeks to fatten and clean them out and basically did the scald and scrape process. Then roasted with sweet potatoes. Good stuff!
