yes, the (really) other dark meat is having a renaissance, of sorts. the first edition of the cookbook "joy of cooking" had recipes for raccoon. http://www.mcclatchydc.com/251/story/...
now, you don't have to worry so much. raccoon is back .......on the table, in the crockpot, on the grill!
will you be on the raccoon-wagon?
and ... is possum hiding for any good reason? there are plenty of other "dark meats", right?
(aka: will "possum" be the new "raccoon"?)
