There are many ways to cook squirrel. The first method involves frying the animal in a pan with half an inch of oil. After 90 minutes of frying, remove the animal from the pan and drain it well. Then, dip it into the mixture of flour and egg and place it in the oven for about one hour. Afterward, remove the squirrel from the oven and serve it with a side of tinfoil and a slice of lemon.
You can also make your own sauce by mixing vinegar, salt, and water in equal amounts. You can soak a few hours and use this to make a gravy. Another method involves soaking the squirrel in vinegar and salt in water for two hours. Once the squirrel is soaked in the mixture, you can fry it in Crisco.

Once the squirrel is cooked, you can add the sauce on top, and serve it as a meal.

Once the meat has browned, transfer it to the oven and bake for about an hour.
