Recipes for fried squirrel
The first thing you need to do when frying squirrel is to make sure you heat the oil thoroughly. The oil should be hot enough to coat the bottom of the pan and reach about 1/4 inch up the sides of the skillet. To do this, use a Dutch oven or large pot. Also, you should use a wooden spoon to test the temperature of the oil. Once it is hot enough, you can carefully place the dredged squirrel in the oil.
When making a fried squirrel recipe, you can use buttermilk, cayenne pepper, and paprika. To add additional flavor to the dish, you can coat the squirrel in seasoned flour and then run it through a buttermilk and egg wash. Once the squirrel is coated with flour, you can deep fry it in hot oil until it is golden brown. This will ensure the squirrel is cooked evenly and that the crust stays crisp and flavorful. When cooking a squirrel, make sure you choose a young squirrel with tender flesh. Older squirrels have a chewier texture and are better cooked slowly in a slow cooker.
Recipes for squirrel stew
If you are into wild game, squirrel stew can be a great dish to prepare. This tasty stew uses the meat from the squirrel and can be served as a hearty meal. The squirrel should be boiled or roasted for about thirty minutes before you serve it. To make this dish, you need a large saucepan and half-inch of cooking oil. To make it tender, you can add chopped bacon and onion to it. Next, add diluted cream of mushroom soup and lima beans to the pan. Finally, pour in a can of diced tomatoes and canned tomatoes.
This recipe is easy to make and is filled with delicious flavor. The basic ingredients are sliced carrots, potatoes, and onions. Add Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, and flour. Stir them all together. Add the sliced meat to the stew, then cover and simmer it for about an hour. Stir occasionally and it should be ready to serve. Squirrel stew is best served within 90 minutes, but you can increase the amount if you want to serve it as a main course.
Recipes for homemade squirrel cakes
If you’re looking for a fun way to attract more squirrels to your backyard, you may want to try a recipe for homemade squirrel cakes. Grey squirrels love these cakes and they can be made by anyone. You’ll need lard or suet, bird food mix, and a container to set the fat in. Make sure you’re using a plastic container that will fit in the feeder.
Squirrels also like marzipan, so if you don’t have any suet around, you can use gelatin instead. Then, place the cakes in the refrigerator. While these recipes for homemade squirrel cakes are tasty and inexpensive, they may not be attractive to other wildlife. If you want to attract a squirrel, remember to place the cakes away from windowsills and doors. Alternatively, you can try suet-free squirrel cakes, which are similar to homemade squirrel cookies.
