    Three squirrels feeds only 2 people? They must have skinny squirrels in Ohio. Sounds good, though. I’ll get my three retrievers on it. Back east, they would have had no problem bringing home the main course, but now that we live in California I might have to substitute gophers.

    No, No, NO!, Don’t substitute Ground Rats!

    Not the same flavor at all. Squirrel is TOTALLY Different. (Honest I’ve eaten BOTH, survival training)

    I agree! Squirrel tastes of chicken (obviously). Ground rats taste of velociraptor . . .

    SQUIRREL SOUP from the White House Cookbook, 1894

    Wash and quarter three or four good-sized squirrels; put them on with a small tablespoonful of salt, directly after breakfast, in a gallon of cold water. Cover the pot close, and set it on the back part of the stove to simmer gently, not boil. Add vegetables just the same as you do in case of other meat soups in the summer season, but especially good will you find corn, Irish potatoes, tomatoes and Lima beans. Strain the soup through a coarse colander when the meat has boiled to shreds, so as to get rid of the squirrels’ troublesome little bones. Then return to the pot, and after boiling a while longer, thicken with a piece of butter rubbed in flour. Celery and parsley leaves chopped up are also considered an improvement by many. Toast two slices of bread, cut them into dice one-half inch square, fry them in butter, put them into the bottom of your tureen, and then pour the soup boiling hot upon them. Very good.

    You might be surprised how much meat is on a squirrel. Here in the north valley our neighborhood is overrun with squirrels. They are becoming a real problem. Anyone know how to get rid of them? I have shot a few with my bb gun but neighbors make that a little risky.

    Giant squirrels do have much more meat on them than the smaller grays.

    Cats love squirrels.

    Squirrels don’t enjoy cayenne pepper. If you can find some cheap in bulk, spread that around your property.

    Head collars are great for dogs that pull a lot. They hate the feeling of having their heads pulled sideways!

    Actually, the recipe says two servings. I’ve yet to meet an American that only ate one serving of meat at a meal. Seriously, never. Most eat 3-5 times that, that I’ve seen, and even more when eating out. A serving of meat is 2-3 ounces.

    What, exactly, IS squirrel season? When they’re not hibernating? When it’s legal to blast them with a .410?

    My brother-in-law hunts squirrels. I have to check out what they taste like sometime.
