Squirrel Recipes


These small fur-bearing animals have scent glands in the small of the back and under the forelegs and the thighs. These should be removed without cutting into them. The fat on the squirrel is usually very spare and most people do not object to its flavor or odor. Squirrel may be cooked successfully by all good recipes for chicken except that fat should be added to give the necessary rich flavor. Young tender squirrels can be fried, broiled, and roasted; older squirrels need to be simmered, fricasseed, or braised. Tasty squirrel meat is medium red in color, tender, and has a pleasing flavor. There is little gamey taste and only the oldest and toughest need parboiling.
