It's Thanksgiving and that means one thing here at Goat Rope. It's time for the annual Thanksgiving possum recipe.
(It goes without saying that first one must acquire a possum, which may well not be available in the specialty section of your local grocery store.)
I found the following recipe for Allegheny Roast 'Possum at a website called ushotstuff.com:
Amount Measure Ingredient Preparation Method
2 pounds 'Possum - (to 2 1/2 lbs) fat removed
Salt to taste
Freshly-ground black pepper to taste
3 Sweet potatoes
2 tablespoons Brown sugar
1/4 cup Flour - (to 1/3 cup)
Stuff with Apple-Raisin Stuffing, and truss. Dust with salt and
pepper; put on a roaster rack. Roast at 325 degrees for 1 hour to 1
1/2 hours (30 to 35 minutes per pound). For the last 30 minutes, put
peeled and parboiled sweet potatoes around the meat. Dust meat
with brown sugar mixed with 1/4 to 1/3 cup flour. Baste with
juices 3 times during the last 30 minutes.
Enjoy, and happy Thanksgiving!
(Note: I'm sticking to turkey.)
