Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
\N \N Possum
\N \N Dumplings
\N \N Sweet potatoes
\N \N Onions
\N \N Salt

After hunting with a lantern in your hand all night, take the possum you have bagged and break his neck by putting your foot on the possum's head and pulling up on his tail. Use boiling water to scald Brother Possum. In a large pan, dress the animal by pulling out those hairs on him. When all is well done, cut Brother Possum into four parts. Add salt and boil the meat until tender. Make your dumplings and add them slowly to the boiling meat. After the possum has boiled about an hour, put the parts into a baking dish. Peel sweet potatoes and slice them thick. Place the slices in the pan around the pieces of possum. Add onions if desired. Bake for 1 hour. This is a Sunday dinner for 12 people with the dumplings.
