seriously? Only southern folk.....

Posted by   + Show Post

Ok, myabe other people not from the south would enjoy this....

I recently received a "southern style" cook book from my MIL (they are from Georgia). I was just thumbing through and come across this recipe:

Fried Squirrel.

Now, who knows, maybe this really is a delicious dish. I wouldnt know since I have never tried it and never really wanted to. However, I am wondering where one would actually get squirrel in order to fry it. I am pretty darn sure I have never seen this at the butcher block at the local Stater Bros (or Krogers, Vons, Albertsons, Aldi's, Publix, etc)

You shoot one.
Squirrel meat isn't that bad. Not something I'd want all the time though.

if it were readily available at the local grocery store, I may be more inclined to try it. =)

I went pheasnt hunting a couple times and I can fish, but somehow the thought never occured to me to shoot a squirrel and eat it....if I somehow managed to shoot one, I wouldnt even know how to skin it =)
