Hold it! Caj. Before you get too carried away going through my recipes, let's get one thing straight, on the table. Recipes for raccoons can also be used for opossums. In other words, "possum" recipes work just as well for "coons." Just remember, sweet taters go with possum; white taters or spuds go with coon. You can just about swap squirrel for rabbit; nearly. All depends on whether ya got a wild hare or a domesticated rabbit. Got it? Good. Kinda thought you would. Now carry on.
