Thinking back to those stories from so many years ago, I laugh at what is considered normal table fare today. For my grandfather and his rural neighbors during the Great Depression, it took a first-person disturbing event to remove opossum from the menu. I clearly remember my grandpa recounting eating chipmunks and raccoons, too. He’d always preface raccoon with, “It’s greasy, but good.” They literally lived off the land around them and nothing went to waste.
