Possum Or Bandicoot Soup


1 Small possum or bandicoot*
2 liters Water
1 teaspoon salt
1 tin corn*
any other vegies desired
1 pinch celery leaves
1 pinch parsley
flour or gravox* to thicken
fried bread; 1 slice per serving

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.
