Stewed Squirrels

Email  Print Recipe  Rate & Review


2 squirrels
2 qts. boiling water
1/2 lb lima beans, fresh
3-4 tomatoes, chopped
1 1/2 t. sugar
2-3 potatoes, in chunks
1/2 onion, sliced
Salt & pepper to taste
3 T. butter


Cut the squirrels into pieces. Put into the boiling water along with the rest of the ingredients, except the butter. Cover and simmer for about 2 hours; add the butter and simmer another 15 minutes. Bring to a full boil, remove from the stove and serve. By the way, grey squirrel is even better than red squirrel, and they are both better tasting when hunted in the fall. Young squirrels may be fried.  (Published 2008)
