Roast 'possum with Kraut

1 ea Dressed opossum; trussed
1 Salt and pepper
1 ts Rosemary; crumbled
1/2 c Water with 1/2 c White wine (optional)
3 lb Sauerkraut
1 ea Onion; quartered
1 c Beer
2 c Chicken broth
1/4 lb Salt pork
20 ea Juniper berries; crushed
1 ts Freshly ground pepper
1 ts Caraway seeds


Rub 'Possum inside and out with salt, pepper, and the rosemary. Place it on a rack in a shallow roasting pan, and roast until tender in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 2 to 2-1/2 hours. If you wish, you can put 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup white wine in the pan and baste the animal occasionally. Meanwhile, wash thoroughly and drain the kraut. Place it in a kettle with the remaining ingredients and bring it to a boil. Turn down the heat, cover, and simmer for about an hour. Place drained sauerkraut around the roast 'possum on a platter and serve with boiled or mashed potatoes.
