You’ve probably wondered, “How many squirrels do I need for a recipe?” After all, you need enough meat to make about 16 dumplings. But how do I make them? First, you need to prepare the dumpling dough. You’ll need enough flour to make a firm dough. Then, you’ll need to roll it out thin and cut it into diamonds or noodle shapes. You’ll then drop the dumplings into the simmering broth. Be sure to add additional water if needed to handle the dough.
To start making the dough, you’ll need a bowl and some flour. This recipe calls for baking powder, salt, parsley flakes, shortening, and milk. Next, you’ll need a dough mixer. Using the dough mixer, blend the ingredients together until you’ve created a dough ball. Roll the dough to a thickness of about one-eighth of an inch. Roll the dough into strips about an inch long. Then, dip them into the boiling squirrel stock.
If you are interested in making homemade dumplings, you may be wondering how to prepare squirrel. Here are some tips to make this delicious treat. First, make sure to brown the pieces of squirrel meat and set aside. Next, mix ricotta, parmesan and nutmeg with flour. Do not exceed 3 1/2 cups of flour for the dumplings. Use well-floured hands to form the dumpling dough into a log. Once the dough is ready, cut it into quarter-inch-thick coins and place them in a warm bowl.
After preparing the ingredients for the dumplings, make a dough ball by combining flour, baking powder, salt, parsley flakes, shortening and milk. Roll it into a ball, forming it to an eighth-inch thickness, and cut into strips. Once the dough is ready, drop it into the boiling squirrel stock. It will cook quickly and effectively. Serve with light bread, and enjoy!
The cooking time for squirrel dumplings depends on the size of the noodle. The recipe calls for using a little bit of flour to make the dough firm and workable. After this, cut the shortening into the flour with a fork. Next, stir in the milk. Pour the dumplings into the broth. Once they’re all in, simmer them for 15 to 20 minutes. During the last minute of cooking, you can add some additional water if the dumplings are too thick.
The squirrel can be cooked in a pot of salted water for three to four hours. After this, set aside and let cool. Once cooled, strain the stock, using a cheesecloth, and then add the meat back to the pot. Then, divide the dough into one-inch-thick pieces and set it in a warm oven.

Cooking time for fried squirrels
For a delicious meal, you can cook a fried squirrel with dumplings. You can use olive oil and butter for this recipe. You can add a bit of salt if you want. Cook the dumplings in batches, flipping them once, for about four to six minutes. You can also turn the drippings into a gravy if you’d like.
First, heat the oil. It should be about 350 degrees. Add a little water, so that it sizzles when it’s ready. Be sure that the oil is deep enough to cover the bottom of the pan and reach about 1/4 of the way up the sides. To avoid the oil from getting too hot, use a Dutch oven or a large saucepan. Test the oil with a wooden spoon to ensure that it’s hot enough.
Once the squirrels are cooked, add chicken broth or water to barely cover the pieces. After the animals are cooked, you can add the dumplings. For best results, make the dumplings the night before. To make them, start by mixing flour and shortening together. Roll them out to about an eighth-inch thickness and cut them into one-inch-wide strips. Then, put them into the boiling squirrel stock.
