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 hunt them. I've never eaten one but I have elderly family members who say REAL brunswick stew is supposed to have squirrel, raccoon, or other wild animals.
Hell I've eaten their brunswick stew so I wouldn't bet much on me never eating squirrel. I just didn't know.

I've had bear and deer. Dh got a deer a few years ago and I had to cook it. It was grape vine fed and not gamely at all. The rest I guess if my family was hungry id cook just about anything.
