I am sure if people had nothing else to eat... they would rather have squirrel than nothing... i know I would.
yep me too and with the squirrel tail I'd go fishing ... get some fish for Friday, after my rabbit on Wednesday ...

Re: Squirrels

I should've learnt my lesson from the other thread on rabbit recipes and not ventured to take a look at this one. Too late! . . .

Don't know about meat, but did you try some pet stores for live squirrels ? You'll have to deal with killing and preparing it yourself. I'd suggest to refrain from trying to discuss recipes when purchasing the animals.
On the other side these guys happily sell mice as snake food....

Re: Where to buy squirrel meat

This thread reminds me of living in Savannah, I'd left an outgoing message on my voice mail saying that I couldn't come to the phone as I was sharpening knives and "Harri" (which happens to be my dog) was out hunting squirrels for stew. Varied reactions were received, depending upon the origins of the caller...

The gals I worked with offered me a recipe for roast raccoon, after which I had to admit the message had been intended as a joke and I changed it.

This recipe for "Bushytail with Autumn Apples" sounds pretty good though... I wonder what I could find that is more commonly available as a good replacement to the squirrel though. (They simply are too cute for me to seriously imagine eating when there are other options... this gal ain't likely to be happy going hungry though so if the day ever comes that a tough choice must be made, bushytail gets it!)

Re: Where to buy squirrel meat

When I used to live in North Carolina, some of my colleagues, who were more "native" of the area used to talk about eating squirrels and eggs for breakfast. Apparently it's quite a delicacy. I suspect anywhere that you've got rural areas and lots of small furry animals, you have a potential meal.

That's true, way back and at home, poor, people I know, would eat crows, pidgeons, cats...But I think if I moved a country, I would first check if I am going to be considered a complete nutter for hunting some valued and precious little mammals that kids spend hours coloring pics of in schools and learn how to feed them in winter. I am still trying to get over the horse eating bit.

My daughter LOVES horses, both to ride and to eat!

Her boyfriend doesn't, however, so every time that he's NOT over for dinner, she asks me to get some horse.

Remember, most meat is really concentrated vegtables (i.e. most meat we eat is from herbivores).

Re: Where to buy squirrel meat

Growing up, visits to my grandfather's meant eating whatever he had trapped or shot in recent days, including squirrels. Veggies from the garden, wine too (I was a kiddie so I got RC Cola or hot tea in a styrofoam cup). Squirrel is good, lots of bones, little meat.

Back home this might be spinning on the turntable:



From Kentucky, of course .
