Recipe ingredients and directions:

Yield: 1 servings

1 ea Small possum or bandicoot*

2 l Water

1 t Salt

1 ea Tin corn*

Any other vegies desired

1 pn Celery leaves

1 pn Parsley

Flour or gravox* to thicken

Fried bread,1 slice per serv

Skin and clean possum or bandicoot, then quarter the animal. (Video

tape this please. I have no idea how to do it. Also "first you have

to catch a possum or bandicoot", but then that's another story.)

Place it in a large pot or camp oven along with water and salt. Cover

and simmer gently for 3 or 4 hours. (Tough little devils apparently.)

Add vegetables and simmer for another 1 1/2 hours (Still tough. Even

the vegies are resisting being associated with this.) Strain soup

through a large holed colander when meat has left bone and remove

bones, especially small ones. Return soup to the pot and add parsley

and celery leaves. Thicken with a little flour or gravox. Cut fried

bread into 1 inch squares and serve soup over toast,boiling hot.

*For those of you that haven't met a bandicoot, it is something

between a possum and a raccoon, sort of, I think, maybe.

*Tin of corn? Well a can I guess, 16 oz.

*Now, when you boil this meat for 5 1/2 hours, strain it and throw it

away, it does make me wonder why you started in the first place.

*Gravox is a meat concentrate seasoning I think. The dish must be

need some flavor.

*Fry the bread any way you want to.

*All things considered, a brick or stone would be a reasonable

alternative if you don't happen to have a possum or bandicoot

available.

Please don't get the impression that this is what my good friends in

Australia eat normally or would even consider eating.

What it is, if I get it typed in, is a collection of recipes from the

harsh outback where you had to make do with what you had. Some of

them are even taken from the Aboriginal Peoples of Australia.

These recipes are for the most part unique, unusual, and as far as I

know factual.

In this particular recipe, I couldn't help from adding some comments,

but then I only used it for a test. Hope you enjoy it even if you

never have unexpected guests and all that is available is a possum or

bandicoot that you don't know what to do with.

MMMMM
