In Case any of you were wonderin'...

This is how we cook squirrel over here in Iowa. In Iowa City the illusive "Black squirrels" are the delicacy:


1 squirrel, cleaned and skinned

Barbecue sauce

Put squirrel in a pot. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the meat falls off the bone. Cut meat into bite-sized pieces. Place pieces in saucepan and top with generous amount of bbq sauce. Cover and simmer 20 minutes.


1 squirrel, cleaned and skinned

1 cup sour cream

2 medium onions, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bone and cut squirrel into bite sized pieces and brown in frying pan. Put pieces in casserole. Mix sour cream and onions and spread over squirrel. Roast 1 hour.
