The recent addition to the Arkansas meat market, the opossum, has brought in much mail requesting recipes utilizing the nocturnal marsupial. It’s taken a bit of searching, but a couple of local restaurant owners have passed along recipes for some of their favorites.  More on this budding new agricultural industry over at Tie Dye Travels.  Recipe for Possum Pie on the jump.
