    Does anyone here eat squirrell when they shoot it??
    Our rule for shooting has always been 'if you shoot it, you eat it' , which is why I don't shoot magpies or crows;)

    If you do eat it, how do you cook it?Let's share some tasty recipes!!

    I keep meaning too, and since seeing it on "The F word" on Channel 4 last week I really should give 'em a try. Trouble is I've been so busy this year there are hardly any left!

    I can cope with taking the breasts of pigeon but preparing a whole squirrel is a different matter!! I went so far as buying a book from amazon "Field dressing and butchering rabbits, squirrels and other small game"!

    I think Huw Furnley Whittingstall has some recipies for squirel. I was thinking of a making a "garden pie" and mixing the pigeon and squirrel and maybe some venison. (OK I don't actually get deer in my garden nor shoot them!). I think you need to mix it with some fat like bacon as it is quite dry meat.

    I'll definately try the next one. Honest..... :)

    Squirrel is good

    I take and quarter my squirrel and then brown it in a pan. I take mushrooms and ongion and de-glaze the pan. Either add heavy cream if going to be served with mash potatoes, or make a brown gravy and let them simmer long, till so tender the meat falls off the bone.

    Very good.
