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)

I dont know the bible, I am not religious.....I do know that quote is memorable.

Quoting jillbailey26:

The mutual edification one?  I have no clue.  I can only hope that most do and maybe we catch them on a bad day.  I know I try and still have bad days.  Yeah, I'm clinging to that :)

Quoting mygardenia:

Why dont more people look to that bible quote?

Quoting jillbailey26:

Uh.  Outside?

1 mom liked this

Well it seems the misunderstanding here is that squirrel is "wild game" much like you arn't able to find beaver, frog legs, or quail at your grocery stores.  Wild game is not something unique to southern people, it is common in all hunting circles.  There are things called "Wild Game Feeds", family and friends all go hunting and come back with their "Wild Game" and they butcher it there and cook it all up and have a massive feed...much like city folk might call a "Pot Luck"...

I myself am quite fond of Wild Game and have eaten plenty of Squirrels.  The meat is extremely lean, low in cholesteral and extremely low fat.  The meat tastes similar to Venison and needs to be tenderized or cooked with a method that will tenderize the meat.  I would recomend a crock pot.  If the meat isn't properly tenderized one might think it is very chewy.  When cooked correctly it is delicious. 

I would recommend it smothered in a mushroom gravy, with Mashed Potatoes and corn on the cob.

You would have to go outside and shoot one youself, silly!!!! I live in the south and I don't eat them. But I know people who do. They say it taste like chicken.
