Baked Groundhog or Opossum

You'll need:

one young groundhog or opossum

a large onion

a large apple

tblspn. vinegar





Skin and cut up like you would a chicken.

Soak in salt water overnight.

Boil with onion, apple and vinegar until tender.

(Depends on age, but it can be stored in the refrigerator when cooked until you're ready to bake it.)

When done, roll pieces in a mixture (equal portions) of cornmeal and flour, salt and pepper to taste.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes (longer if it's been refrigerated).

VARIATION: Or cover with bottled barbecue sauce.

NOTE: Very young groundhogs can be fried in flour without having to be parboiled first.)
