Small Game Recipes: Squirrel: Squirrel Stew
  • 2 Squirrels, cleaned
  • 1 cup All-purpose flour
  • 2 cups Water
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 tablespoons bacon drippings

Cut squirrels into serving pieces. Mix salt, pepper and flour and dredge the squirrel pieces in the mixture. In a large skillet, heat the bacon drippings and fry squirrel pieces, turning occasionally until golden brown. Remove squirrel from the skillet and set aside. Pour off all the bacon drippings except about 3 tablespoons. Add water to the skillet and bring to boil. Return squirrel to the skillet; bring to boil again, cover and reduce heat. Simmer for about 1 1/2 hours or until the meat is very tender. Serve with corn bread.
