Properly prepared, squirrel is delicious. A guy showed me a long time ago about the glands in the armpit of a squirrel. If you look there after you skin it you can't miss them. Once you remove them before cooking you will notice a big difference in the taste. I like mine shoved down into a casserole dish of white rice with chicken broth dumped all over them and baked until the meat falls off the bone. I just made myself hungry. Squirrel season isn't far off.

Wife likes them fried, I prefer to cook and thicken broth with Bisquick, and then cut up canned biscuits, drop in and let them cook till done for easy dumplings. Nice fox squirrel ran across the yard yesterday and I got the craving. Another month till it gets cold enough harvest him.

Some people are reminded of rats, but a squirrel eats nuts, seeds, mushrooms etc. Very tasty, as are rabbits. I do draw the line at anything that eats meat. Time might come a squirrel will look mighty good.

Large iron skillet, with 2-3 cut up squirrels, small red or white potatoes halved, one yellow onion and one large can of whole tomatoes. simmer with the tomatoes' juice continually bubbling and cook until squirrel is tender. The tomatoes help tenderize the meat and remove some of the wild taste some people don't like. Potatoes are just because you need something else and I'm used to cooking various meals as a stew, soup, casserole etc. My ex father-in-law ate squirrels for yrs. but fried them and com plained they were tough, but he liked them. I told him to try the tomatoes and he did that for the next 40 yrs.

Have pan fried them for years and that does the trick as long as you have young squirrels. The old gray hairs are best marinated or stewed. Out in the woods on fall camping trips I used to quarter squirrels, then wrap them in tin foil with plenty of barbecue sauce and bury in hot coals in the fire pit to roast. Next wrapped a potato or two in foil and also roasted in the coals to go with the squirrel. Do it right and the meat falls off the bone. Nothing like a fall camping trip out in the squirrel woods. Great memories.

I make them a lot of different ways. The easiest and one of my favorites is to mix a bottle of Catalina salad dressing and a jar of peach or apricot jam in a crock pot, add the quartered squirrels and cook until tender.

Cut the young ones up and fry them like chicken. You will know they are young if the leg bones bend before breaking, when you clean them. Boil the old ones, in a pot, seasoned with salt and pepper, until the meat will fall off of the bone. Let it cool, then remove the bones. Bring back to a rolling boil, and drop in flat dumplings. A meal fit for a kig. If you don't know how to make flat dumplings, mort grocery stores have them in the freezer section.......Robin

Squirrels have filled many a pot. Wife's cousin up in ME feeds them all summer (on purpose, mind you!) for just that reason. She has directions on cooking just about anything that walks around her house.
