Squirrel Gravy
4-6 young squirrels, cleaned
Salt and pepper to taste
Other spices may be used to your taste. ( garlic, hot pepper, bay leaf, etc.)

Best if you have a pressure cooker. Pare boiling works also in a regular large sauce pan or dutch oven.

Cut squirrels into 6 pieces--2 front and back legs and cut mid section in half crosswise.

In pressure cooker add enough water to cover squirrels 1/2 inch above.

Add salt, pepper and other spices to taste

I sometimes use chicken broth instead of water. Bring water to a boil, cover. In a pressure cooker adjust to an easy rolling rock.

In pan to a medium boil. Cook 45 min. to 1 hr. Remove squirrel pieces, reserving liquid. In a separate bowl mix flour and enough water to make a slurry. ( Thin paste ).

Add to reserved liquid and bring to a low boil, stir often. Cook until you get a thin white gravy. about 15 minutes. It it thickens too much, add more water, or stock.

Taste for seasoning. Add squirrel pieces back to gravy and simmer until heated through. Serve over biscuits, rice, mashed potatoes, whatever you prefer.

Really good on a fall day!
