    SMO,

    Your lady's recipe looks GREAT & I will try it soon, as I have about a dozen squirrels, that are too old to fry, in the freezer.
    (Tell her THANK YOU & that the recipe reminds me of the dumplings that my governess made me often, when I was a child. - I truly LOVED those dumplings, whether with squirrel/chicken.)

    yours, satx

    I grew up eating Squirrels(gray). Every Sunday my Grandmother would cook whatever I brought home and have a big dinner (usually rabbits and Squirrels). I was a teen so I would skin the tree rats and save the front and rear legs and the backs. She would pressure cook them with chicken broth,garlic, celery and onion. After cooking for 35-40 minutes let the pressure go down by itself then add potatoes and carrots...cook for ten more minutes and quick cool under cold water. Remove everything from the cookers and make a gravy with the remaining liquid. This was melt in your mouth eating. I liked the front and rear legs my Grandmother enjoyed the backs. The meat was fall apart tender. The gravy was the best I ever had.I should say the MOST important part of cleaning Squirrels is getting every bit of fur off. I would usually soak both rabbits and Squirrels in cold water with a little baking soda over night.

    Slow cook chuncks with quail, dove and rabbit. Put in white cream sauce with cubed turnip an traditional stew veggies. Serve with jalapeno cornbread.
